Plant Fetish Reviews
“(Plant Fetish) generates a joyful energy… A timely and empowering tale of the benefits of embracing foliage over FOMO, the beauty that can be found within imperfection, and the transformative power of nature.”
– CIRCLES & STALLS
“Chanje Kunda defies expectations by adopting a tongue-in-cheek style closer to an autobiographical comedian… Kunda generates a naturally warm and appealing personality that keeps the audience riveted to her story… (Plant Fetish) is strikingly successful.”
– BRITISH THEATRE GUIDE
“Chanje Kunda’s witty, playful personality radiates throughout the performance, resulting in an engaging and delightfully entertaining show. I am definitely going to take a leaf out of Kunda’s book and buy more plants for my house!”
– THE PLAY’S THE THING
About The Show
Chanje Kunda was suffering with stress and anxiety when she first discovered that plants soothe the soul. She then learnt that some women in Mexico, fed up with men, were getting married to trees. Trees aren’t very talkative, but they are tall, do great things for the planet, and are renowned for their wood. Chanje was inspired and surrendered to this notion. She fell in love with plants. The pressures of life drifted away.
We are forever comparing our lives to those of others on social media and the superficial numbers game that is dating via onlineapps. Plant Fetish will inspire you to embrace foliage over FOMO!
This show maps her journey, and will feature a harem of stunning tropical plants that dress the stage. There will be music and movement, dramatic narrative and metaphors of growth and renewal. The show ends on a climax…
