(The Return of) The Unicorn's Story Cabaret

Derek Flores (NZ) and Michi Flores (NZ)

A celebration of what can be accomplished with little preparation and even less forethought. The bespoke teller of tall tales and weaver of spontaneous stories The Unicorn hosts an evening of cabaret acts discovered at NZIF, placing them in delightfully weird new contexts to see how these diamonds in the rough shine. Will it be stories, songs, scenes, or scintillating repartee?

Returning to NZIF after its 2015 Festival debut, The Unicorn’s Story Cabaret has since performed at festivals around the country. Starring Derek Flores and an ensemble drawn from across the Festival.
