Wellington's first political hair salon and pop coffee shop, in the lead up to the general election Political Cuts offers cheap coffee and free professional haircuts for young people who are prepared to engage in political discussion in the lead up to the General Election.
A professional barista and hairdresser provoke political thought while providing personal service. This non-partisan project targets a younger (and potentially disengaged) audience in an attempt to give them a platform for conversation. Each cut will be shared online with a personal summary of thought by the newly coiffed/caffeinated visitor.
Political Cuts is a collaboration between Barbarian Productions (Jo Randerson) and Jason Muir (Cirque and Haight Ashbury). Barbarian Productions previously worked with the Urban Dream Brokerage in 2013 to present Brides. Political Cuts enables young people to engage in political discussion in a fun and theatrical way.
