Sightings

About this image

Whangarei Fritter Festival

Written by: Miriama McDowell and Fiona Graham with Denyce Su’a. Directed by: Kura Forrester with Sam Scott

Sightings is funny, deep, dark and delightful. Smart and sassy characters are tracking connections, hunting possibilities, and navigating their future.

For anyone who has a sister, mother, grandmother or daughter this contemporary and gutsy piece of theatre will take you on a strangely familiar journey.

How do you measure a life? The characters in this play are figuring out how to carve their own existence, whilst unwittingly offering clues for others as they travel their path.

Ka Mua, Ka Muri Walking backwards into the future. Navigating our future, holding the past in our sight. Tipping into the unknown. We gaze ahead. We survey the landscape. We carry in our bones those before us. Prepare to be lost and found. Your compass, tape measure, binoculars and shark tooth are provided.

The performance will be followed by a 20-30 minute post show forum. An option to stay behind, meet the company, ask questions and chat.

Presented by: Massive Theatre Company
