1:31 The 'Loading Docs' initiative
A crowd-funding scheme will see 10 new innovative Kiwi documentary shorts hit our computer screens in May – well that’s if the public is prepared to chip in too. It’s part of the ‘Loading Docs’ initiative. One of the 10 is Joel Kefali, who directed the award-winning video for Lorde’s Grammy winning song 'Royals'.

1:41 Lashings of Whipped Cream - A Session with a Teenage Dominatrix
Twenty years ago, Fiona Samuel dominated the stage in her play, Lashings of Whipped Cream – A Session with a Teenage Dominatrix. During an hour in her bondage and discipline dungeon, Mistress Dominique shared the secrets of her profession with the audience as prospective clients. Now, the show is back, but with a twist. Mistress Dominique is played by teenage drag diva Rhubarb Rouge, the creation of performer Ricky Beirao. Performance, drag, B&D – all use the fluidity of identity and reality to do their work; the theatre isn’t really a dungeon; Mistress Dominique isn’t really a teenager. The actor isn’t really a dominatrix. Justin Gregory talks identity and illusion with both Fiona and Ricky.

They’ll drop by to talk about unravelling some of the knottier Shakespearean passages.
