Taki Rua Productions presents the Te Wai Paapaku Season of Strata Preview: Thursday 25 September, 8pm, $5 Season: Friday 26 September Saturday 11 October no show Sun/Mon Time: 8pm Tickets: $15/$12
Set in the late 1800¹s on the rugged West Coast of the South Island, Strata is the story of brothers Angus and Mo, and Angus¹ search for redemption 1000ft underground.
Mo, a mountain of a man, is a simpleton, relying absolutely on his younger brother since childhood. Angus has become provider, protector and only friend.
Angus has lured Mo into many mines with the promise of earning enough money to get back home. Now working as strike breakers in the union stronghold of the West Coast, all Mo wants is to feel the sun on his back instead of 1000ft of earth.
But Angus has a different motive, using his brothers ability to see ³don¹t knows², spirits that don¹t know they are dead, to find a way to Ruaumoko, God of earthquakes, volcanoes and the unborn child, in the hope of reclaiming the soul of the child he has lost.
Into the pit comes Pushy, their trucker, a Welshman who is not what he seems, offering Mo the possibility of independence and hope in the face of tragedy.
Starring Kirk Torrance, Grant Roa and Malcolm Murray, directed by Tim Spite, lights by Dimitrius Hegglun, sounds by Everett Fuller and costumes by Colin McLean.
