i want to write you a submarine
Poetry & Spoken Word / Amazwi

I want to write you a telescope, 10 pairs of binoculars, a fishing rod, a flight ticket to find me. A symphony, a streetlight, a Sunday. I want to write you a submarine.

Lauded by Theatre Scene CPT as “hyper-personal”, “universal” and “razor sharp”, ‘i want to write you a submarine’ combines poetry, song and storytelling in an intimate show by award-winning writer Andi Colombo. Funny, sad, and honest, ‘i want to write you a submarine’ traverses love, loss, loneliness and online dating as a twenty-something in twenty-twenty-something. Fresh from performances at Toneelhuis in Cape Town and US Woordfees 2023, and for the first time at NAF, Andi Colombo presents 'i want to write you a submarine. '
