MĀORI MEN ON PROTECTION AND PUNISHMENT

Thursday 14 June
6pm- 7pm
Q Theatre
FREE PRE-SHOW EVENT - booking essential

Five Māori men get together to kōrero tene about their first-hand encounters with the police.

Contributors include Ngarimu Blair (Ngāti Whātua), Aaryn Niuapu (Ngāti Whakaue), Pita Turei (Ngai Tai ki Tamaki) and Professor Scotty Te Manahau Morrison (Ngāti Whakaue).

This kōrero takes a deeper look at the questions raised in Cellfish, a show taking us behind the walls of a New Zealand prison. Together they share stories from their own experiences, and discuss crime, victimisation and the over-representation of Māori in the criminal justice system.

BARD BEHIND BARS

An Interview with Miriama McDowell and Jason Te Kare

"That’s what I really loved about this project – the potential to take what I’ve learnt in the last 20 or so years working within the Māori theatre industry, and make a step forward." - Jason Te Kare

Creators Miriama McDowell and Jason Te Kare chat to Kate Prior from The Pantograph Punch about the development of Cellfish, Māori theatre, and what Shakespeare's got to do with it.

Read the full interview here.

CELLFISH

13 - 24 June

Q THEATRE

Shakespeare has power. Miss Lucy knows it. The themes in his work speak to her. Ambition. Jealousy. Deception. Disorder. She believes in the Bard’s stories, because they’ve helped her understand her own and she thinks they’ll help others find their way too.

A gripping dark comedy, where unexpected talents are revealed and twisted fantasies surface.

Presented in collaboration with Q Theatre and Taki Rua

Direction: Jason Te Kare
Performance: Jarod Rawiri; Carrie Green
Design: Thomas Press; Jane Hakaraia; Kristin Seth
