SLOWING THE SUN
A story of modern indigenous times in tandem with the pūrākau “Māui me te Rā”.
A whānau in a town just outside of a coastal city is burdened by insurmountable challenges: a racist system, colonised minds, a tumultuous climate, lingering grief, and worst of all – the stubbornly unchanging nature of each member of the whānau.
For the tamariki o te whānau, Putu, the answers for how you can achieve the impossible lie in the story of Māui slowing the sun.
How can something that has always existed be changed? And what do you do when the people who are supposed to be your pou, are tearing you down?
Everything we see and hear is an extension of how the performer feels. That is the real journey, and that in and of itself, is true to the heart, and executed brilliantly.
