+3 Interview: Bonqrz

“A BonQrz is directed by Erkan Mustafa (80’s legend Roland Browning from TV’s Grange Hill) and written and performed by myself.”

WHO: Narin, Actor & writer

WHAT: “A BonQrz style seminar about how Narin Oz’s disastrous life choices made her decide to be a budgerigar. Directed by Erkan Mustafa (80’s Legend Roland Browning from Grange Hill) Narin Oz takes the audience on bizarre journey of human folly in order to show them why life is now better being a budgerigar and reveals various methods of freeing your mind. These methods create a very effective path to become a fully brainless budgie like Narin Oz. “Exhilarating” – Marissa Burgess, The List. “Oz is the 21st Century Andy Kaufman”- Martin Walker, Fringe Pig.”

Is this your first time to Edinburgh?

Noooo. I am known for blurring the lines of reality and fiction because all my shows have an element of live pranks. Q I did an interactive show comedy show called Narin Oz: Addicted To Love in 2014, in my car, about love addiction. It was was a live prank show where I did physical stunts on my car and then pretended to fancy one of the audience members. Then I told them to bugger off. It was fun. In 2017 I did another show called #Dirtywoman it was inspired by Jekyll & Hyde story and it contained topsoil which the audience sometimes threw at me every time they felt offended.

What’s the biggest thing to have happened to you since Festivals ’17?

Getting rid of #Dirtywoman. There was too much mud in the show and I became sick of going home all the time looking like a horse sh*t me out.

Tell us about your show.

A BonQrz is directed by Erkan Mustafa (80’s legend Roland Browning from TV’s Grange Hill) and written and performed by myself. The show is a satirical seminar about how Narin Oz’s disastrous life choices made her decide to be a budgerigar. Narin Oz takes the audience on a very surreal journey of human folly in order to show them why life is now better being a budgerigar. Oz shares the most embarrassing details of her life and reveals various methods of freeing your mind. These methods create a very effective path to become a fully brainless budgie like Narin Oz.

“Fed up of life? You too can be a budgerigar with my one-step programme. So set yourself free, come join the flock & get a free budgie swing with every cage whilst stocks last. This seminar is purposely unconventional because the moral of the show is intrinsically about self-acceptance & the courage to express your true authentic self. Only then you will be able to walk the path of your true destiny as a budgerigar. This seminar is so life-changing that I will be taking a 20% cut for the rest of your life (Cash only. You will be fitted with a tracking device so that our people can find you)”.

I have done 14 previews including The Brighton Fringe Festival and I hope to perform the show in odd places.

What should your audience see at the festivals after they’ve seen your show?

There are two main shows & people that changed my life that dabble in the risque:
1) Red Bastard’s Come Lie With Me
2) Sharney Nougher & David Tieck’s Two Little Dick Heads.
