Thursday : Dunedin Fringe Festival

Thursday

"Brief but beautiful, THURSDAY is one for the diaries".

Inspired by the 1945 film classic Brief Encounter, named by The Guardian as “the best romantic film of all time”, THURSDAY creates a brief encounter with the arts for Dunedin’s unsuspecting public. The Dunedin Railway Station will for a brief moment transform from a place of transportation and transit, to a scene of high romance and nostalgia. Borderline Arts Ensemble is excited for people to look at their public spaces anew through dance and art. THURSDAY is a duet full of drama and stunning dancing, created by Borderline's Artistic Director and "ascendant dancer and choreographer Lucy Marinkovich" (Pantograph Punch).

"I wish Thursday was longer. Not something I would typically say but in the case of Thursday by the Borderline Arts Ensemble, Friday can wait" - Natasha Thyne, Theatreview.

"Passers-by paused, stopped, and missed their trains on Thursday, caught in the magic of a mastery of movement that is rarely seen on stage let alone in a railway station!" - Deirdre Tarrant, Theatreview.

"This is better than all the lyrics of all the love songs on all the shelves of all the music shops of the world" - Jennifer Shennan, Theatreview.
