Think of a garden


Yesterday there was a minor flood in the archives/storage space for the library I work in. We've been peeling old dance and theatre programmes away from each other hoping that they will dry out. There are many gems to be found in the collections – photos of established NZ actors or directors when they were young and still smiling. It's interesting to look at them and wonder where the students I work with will be in thirty years.
This is one of my favourite programmes. It's for "Think of a garden" by John Kneubuhl. The programme is made from what looks like handmade paper. It has an organic feel to it which I imagine matched the aesthetic of the play.
