When a young Māori storyteller starts her new role as a copywriter at a leading advertising agency , she sets aside her creative ambitions to climb the corporate ladder. As her work status rises, so too does the pressure to uphold tikanga in an all-Pākehā environment. At her lowest point, she remembers lessons at university with an unruly lecturer that inspires her to make the next big move in her writing career.
This is a meeting of live theatre and live action. Where Māori/ Pasifika / PoC production, design, cast and crew are leaning in to Pasifika ways of storytelling in order to hold our collective narrative now and for the future.
