James Nokise: The Bronaissance (NZ International Comedy Festival)

1797399_622043731206940_773306012_nNEW ZEALAND’S OWN SO-SO GANGSTA HITS THE STAGE WITH A BRAND NEW GANG.

Once again, comedy will be pushed to its extreme when award winning comic James Nokise brings his “bros” together to incorporate visual art, music, dance and poetry within the comedy walls of his very own take on The Renaissance.

The Bronaissance is a sequel to James’ highly successful 2013 solo show So-so Gangsta where James will be collaborating with Footnote Dance, celebrated poet Karlo Mila, composer Adam Page, and visual artists Janet Lilo, Cheyenne Tuffery and Jeremy Leatinuu, creating a new kind of gang where expression is king and perceptions are challenged.

Having grown up in Whitby and The Hutt, James was a teenage gang member turn comic and playwright. With this unique insider’s perspective at his fingertips, James’ comedy is smartly provocative, with a political and sociological bent.
