    Event Details

     

     

    Miria George’s Fire In The Water, Fire In The Sky will premiere at Wellington’s Kia Mau Festival 2017.

     

    Fire In The Water, Fire In The Sky is a modern statement of climate change, colonisation and Christianity across the Pacific rim. An innovative performance piece created and directed by Mīria George and performed by Te Hau Winitana, Manarangi Mua and Mapihi Kelland.

     

     

    It is an untangling of the greatest collision to have affected Te Moana-nui-a-kiva – western imperialism. Told through movement, dance and text, Fire In the Water, Fire In The Sky is performed in gallery and museum spaces. A cautionary tale of greed and destruction, big business and family, Fire In The Water, Fire In The Sky is a search for hope.

     

     

    Created in Hawai’i in 2017 as part of Mīria’s Fulbright-Creative New Zealand Pacific Writer in Residency at University of Hawai’i at Mānoa, the Kia Mau Festival marks Fire In The Water, Fire In The Sky premiere season.

     

     

    Fire In The Water, Fire In The Sky features design by Cara Louise Waretini + Tony De Goldi. This new work is produced by Tawata Productions.
