A1 NZICF:AUK Arsebiscuits small.jpg

We’re all some kind of arsebiscuit… the trick is how to be more biscuit, less arse.


In her debut solo show for NZICF, Zehra is doing what she does best - a goulash of storytelling and political commentary, peppered with absurdity, dark humour and personal context.


Is it possible to be a better person? Should we even try? And if so, how can we possibly achieve it, if we keep concentrating on the wrong things? What price friendship, when revolution beckons? What price joy and compassion? Are nuance and context lost forever? Was the shark really the villain in Jaws? And, most importantly, what about the menz?
