On its debut, National Business Review theatre critic John Smythe described Tao Wells’ play Inuit Time as "An insult to the fundamentals of theatre".


Now Wells is bringing a new version of the theatre show back to Wellington, starring well known Wellington actors and writers for the next two Monday evenings at Fred’s Venue in Frederick Street. And this time the play features a showdown between artists – between those who are employed and those who are not.

Featuring a script created by the actors to a set of Wells’ rules but with no rehearsals, Inuit Time is an accompaniment to Wells’ art project The Beneficiary’s Office, part of the Letting Space public art programme. The Beneficiary’s Office advocates the opportunities and benefits of official unemployment through a PR company, Wells Group.

“I have taken the elements of theatre and shifted them slightly,” says Wells of the play, “The original notion of the arts doing a good deed in purging dangerous emotions from a populace is reversed. I uncover these emotions, but I ask the audience to take responsibility for them, till the wheels of the theatre fall off.”

One of the more popular counterfeited watch models are the High Quality Replica Rolex - which are illegally manufactured replicas of authentic replica rolex submariner watches. As with many of the expensive brand-name luxury watches on the market, replica rolex gmt can frequently be found being counterfeited and sold illegally on the internet and the street.
