About the event
The New Zealand wars have come to an end, the pandemic has ravaged the country and Hine Hōia stands at the precipice of a world in tatters, until a chance encounter will change her life forever.
In this magical re-imagining of The Soldier’s Tale by Stravinsky, Ngāi Tahu/Ngātiwai writer and director Juanita Hepi and Cirko Kali’s Danny Lee Syme reunite with composer Hamish Oliver to bring you this epic saga of love, greed, trickery, tradition, and triumph.
