Jester Kim Merry

The wonderful Kim Merry has passed away in Nelson, New Zealand after a long battle with cancer.

For many people Kim will be remembered as an inspired artist and teacher who was fundamental in bringing Commedia Del ĎArte mask theatre traditions to New Zealand and for some he will also be known as the director of various great events like the Nelson Buskers Festival and the Nelson Arts Festivalís Mask Parade.

Kim leaves behind his beloved family Jane, Dan & Georgia

RIP Kim, the struggle is now over and the journey continues, you were a special soul who will be inspiring in our hearts always

Those first Nelson fests were a hoot and she was a lovely host. She certainly did her best to get a community based festival up and running in the wake of Ch-ch.

She'll be missed.

Edit, Kim told me of a dream he once had where he changed gender at death, sorry for any confusion.
