A TED TALK ON NANGS
Created and performed by Harriet Gillies, Dramaturgy by Julia Croft, Digital and Media by Xanthe Dobbie.

After a sell-out season in 2019, The Power of the Holy Spirit is back with its existential joie de vivre to celebrate the void fucking year that has been 2020. Like a performative lecture on mushrooms, storytelling whilst popping Nangs. This award-winning experimental solo performance explores the control we do/don't have over our lives in a post-truth world. #trippy #lol #posttruthbaby

WHY NOT MAKE A NIGHT OF IT?

The Flying Nun have partnered with local bar BITTER PHEW to curate your pre-show experience in Darlinghurst. Add "Bitter Phew Reservation" to your ticket purchase (below in Extras) to secure a seat and a drink of choice from 6.30pm-7.30pm on the night of the show.
