Akakite Mai Itaau Tua | Tell Me A Story

Wednesday, 20th March, 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm

The critically-acclaimed hit of the 2019 Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival is at The Meteor for a special, one-night-only event!

Local creative dynamos, composer Jeremy Mayall and writer/director Benny Marama, team up to tell the story of Benny’s parents as they fall in love, emigrate to Aotearoa, separate and find each other again.

Weaving together real life stories with Māori and Polynesian mythology, an aural experience unlike anything heard before will be created. Heart-breaking and heart-warming, this is an examination of love found and love lost, as well as a celebration of the stories that have been passed down from generation to generation.

“With Mayall, Marama searches the past to make sense of his present, and in doing so this extraordinary set of creatives have produced something as tender as it is strong, as powerful as it is moving.”Theatreview
