Welcome to the Coffee shop!
A performance about one barista girl and her world in an intimate space with the smell of coffee, dance and theatre comedy flavour.
The performance had a premiere at Wellington Fringe Festival 2019 and Coffee Bean-Queen Machine was nominated for a Fringe festival award-Most innovative performance.
..."It’s delightful and quirky. Tiny puppets act out the story which is based on her life. Coffee shop staples – takeaway cups, cupholders etc – are pressed into service to help create the settings. There are some beautifully clever moments which charm us."...(review from Wellingtonista)
... "a tour of New Zealand becomes a tour of the coffee shop, as Paja uses Coffix’s architecture in a way that is gorgeously simple, and has the audience squealing in delight"... (review from Theatreview)
