Neither Here Nor There might be described as spoken word, a theatre experience or live art, it is a series of conversations that happen over six minutes.
Jo and Sonia host and ask and answer questions about how it’s all going, big unfathomable questions about the world, small questions about the state of your garden. Weather permitting Sonia and Jo take the audience on a short walk, there’s small talk, a bite to eat, tables, chairs, questions, talking and listening.
Jo Fong and Sonia Hughes describe themselves as two middle-aged award-winning international provincial artists. They are the ultimate hosts and introduce with warmth and openness. It’s intimate, funny and awkward, yet as it should be. Born out of a frustration with superficial connections, iPhones, twitter, instagram, the binary nature of public debate and the rest, Neither Here Nor There creates a space, some time and we slow down. Complexity takes time.
Previous audience members have described the show as “Inspiring, heartfelt and engaging” and “Thought provoking, cathartic and quite lovely”.
