hi everyone,

next week there will be two performances of "Jeux de Massacre" in
UpStage, at 9am and 9pm UK time (find your local time here
<https://tinyurl.com/yd4se22y> - this is the first performance, add 12
hours for the second). https://upstage.org.nz/?event=jeux-de-massacre

In 1970, absurdist playwright Eugene Ionesco wrote /Jeux de Massacre/
(known in English as /The Killing Game/ or /Here Comes a Chopper/) – a
dark comedy in which the plague ravages a small town and everyone dies.
As a new pandemic overwhelms the globe and people rush to isolation and
internet communication, it seems appropriate and timely to translate
this work from the stage to cyberspace. Christina Papagiannouli
(UK/Greece) has teamed up with Clara Gomes (Portugal), Helen Varley
Jamieson (Germany/Aotearoa NZ), Miljana Perić (Serbia) and Vicki Smith
(Aotearoa NZ) to produce /Jeux de Massacre/ in UpStage and adapt it to
current crises.

Performances take place on 9 July 2020 at 9am and 9pm UK time. Find your
local time here <https://tinyurl.com/yd4se22y> (this is the first
performance, add 12 hours for the second).

Please remember: UpStage does NOT work on mobile devices such as tablets
and smartphones (yet!), you must use a browser on a laptop or desktop
computer. You may also need to manually allow Flash in your browser –
