Leaving the Underworld
Season: Wednesday 15 - Saturday 25 September (no show Sunday)
Time: 7pm
Tickets: $15 full $12 concession

'Leaving the Underworld' is a devised performance exploring identity in New Zealand¹s immigrant culture, and draws on the talents of its creator and performer Truelove, award-winning choreographer Louise Potiki-Bryant, well-known actor/director Nancy Brunning, and Naked Samoan Jerome Leota.

Truelove hopes to take Pacific Island theatre into a new direction, saying ³it was important for me to go back pre-colonisation and explore storytelling in a way my ancestors might have. People can come to think myths aren¹t relevant to their lives, subsequently I don¹t know what my culture is so I have to write modern-day myths to find out who I am.²

Truelove believes that it is this very water that appears to divide us that actually draws us all together. ³New Zealanders are all Pacific Islanders, we are a Pacific Island nation and need to define our own stories.²
