Watching Paint Dry (New Zealand)


1 Feb 2018 - 1 Jan 2021

Short Synopsis

A different colour every night!

Join solo performer Sean Lynch as he guides you through the art of watching paint dry (live!) while your phone is turned
on and set to loud.

A minimalist exploration of modern life and Scandinavian Zen, Watching Paint Dry will take you on an extraordinary journey through the freshly coated corridors of your mind.

From the company behind Manifesto 2083 comes a transcendental theatre experience for people who want to expand their minds while staying connected.

Reviews Feature

"There’s a careful understanding of what the audience expects coming into a show with such a title, and Falstie-Jensen playfully toys with these expectations expertly. The performance by Sean Lynch is similarly self-aware, performed with the focus and intention of Buster Keaton but armed with a knowing smile."
