To the Outback, and beyond!
Where else can you be transported from a trip to the Outback into the industrial heart of Monochrome City, or jump from a family camping trip to a South Auckland Story?
Go Solo 2013 - Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School’s annual collection of individual perspectives on worlds real, unreal and sometimes surreal showcasing the diversity of vision held by our final year acting students.
Third year acting students present this year’s annual season of Go Solo from Wednesday 2 – Saturday 12 October at Te Whaea: National Dance and Drama Centre. The show will comprise 16 new 20-minute solo shows created and performed by graduating actors, who will present their pieces in four groups.
The season is directed by Anya Tate-Manning.
For many of Toi Whakaari’s graduates this established season has served as their first major stepping stone into the professional theatre. Go Solo provides Wellington audiences with the opportunity to view fresh, bold theatre from the next generation of fine New Zealand performers.

Tim presents RAPsody in True: A South Auckland Story, Vā’imoana explores the meaning of home while Jack Buchanan’s alter ego Bryan takes us on a tour of the Outback. Reuben presents his ‘Stanislaughatme’ method and Greta shares a summer love, Brynley uses improvisation and her love of the Labyrinth to bring us stories from the bayou...
Audiences may chose to see a single group, or all the groups over several nights or see all four shows on a Saturday with a marathon of performances at 2.30pm, 4.30pm, 6.30pm and 8.30pm.
