WITI'S WĀHINE: Sat 1:30pm
A theatrical celebration of some of New Zealand fiction’s most inspirational wāhine Māori, Witi’s Wāhine is an evocative and revealing homage to the characters of The Matriarch, Pounamu Pounamu (and more) and to the real mana wāhine who served as their inspiration.
Reviewer Simon Wilson said of the production that it serves up “...the richness of culture and the wonder of people, with all their warts, with all the laughter and the singing and the pain”. Originally devised and directed by the late Nancy Brunning, we proudly present this Hapai Productions performance of words and song, re-directed by Waimihi Hotere and with a special appearance by Ihimaera’s irresistible ngā tuāhine.
This performance will be followed by a kōrero with Witi Ihimaera and his tuāhine.
Supported by Theresa Gattung.
Also performed 12 & 13 May at 5.15pm, 14 & 15 May at 7.30pm
