Whakahari Whakaari

  • Whakaheri Whakaari
  • Created by Dunedin Secondary Drama Students
  • Tue 18 Sep
  • Otago Boys High School Auditorium
  • Dunedin

A unique student-led initiative involving several Dunedin secondary schools as their contribution to NZ Theatre Month.

The students have each developed a short piece which celebrates drama (Whakahari Whakaari).  These are then presented collectively as a complete ‘show’.

Further, the organising group have secured the support of Dunedin City Council and it’s UNESCO City of Literature program, have secured a school venue at no cost, and are promoting the show city-wide through their own networks.

All proceeds generated by Whakahari Whakaari will go to the Dunedin’s Hope Centre, headquarters of the Life Matters Suicide Prevention Trust.

This initiative is to be applauded, sums up the spirit of NZ Theatre Month beautifully and reinforces the notion that NZ theatre has a vibrant future.
