Join playwright and journalist Julie Hill for a relaxed fireside listening party at The Arts Centre’s Great Hall for her new podcast FERNWEH.
German for "faraway-sickness", FERNWEH is a funny and thoughtful ode to making and losing connections in this strange modern age.
Recline on a bean bag and listen the beginnings of this new work and feel free to join in on an informal chat afterwards. Hill has written about New Age culture, the history of Karangahape Road and a classmate who became a famous white supremacist, among other subjects.
With some refreshments provided, we recommend you also enjoy hospitality at Cellar Door (bookings recommended) or the Bijou Bar at Lumiere Cinema before and/or after the event.
