A physical weaving of brotherhood, nostalgia and change.
Riverside Kings is set in a world of contradictions – rough and idyllic – A story inspired by the suburb of Timberlea, Upper Hutt.

Salaki, his younger and directionless brother has remained at home. This Christmas the two brothers are reunited to face the void that has replaced their childhood memories.
Peni finds that time has changed Timberlea as much as life has changed them. With questions, memories and unfinished words in the air, expecting the whole of Samoa for Christmas, will they move forward and create new traditions and memories to last?
Told with a physical prowess Riverside Kings is a dance of brotherhood, as the boys return to their stomping grounds.
I Ken So Productions, Wellingtons newest little company are proud to present Riverside Kings written by Natano Keni and Sarita So and introducing Natano Keni as first time director.
