HBAF 2020 Presents - As the Day Draws In

HBAF 2020 Presents - As the Day Draws In

This is a unique collaboration by some of our country’s best theatre makers.

“As The Day Draws In is a place-based theatre piece that shows us our Heretaunga, the things that link us, it centres in an organic past somewhere between post-war and yesterday. It’s wrapped in nostalgia but isn’t old. It’s comfortable in its familiarity but has barbs like all good family stories, those knots of warmth that have secrets hidden within, those long lives that contain inevitable sadness and shadows” Jess Soutar Barron, The Hook

Based on interviews conducted by Puti Lancaster and Teresa Woodham, the unique and intimate voices of six elderly people are shared through the platform of verbatim theatre. They range from 70–91 years of age and their voices reflect the cultural and social richness of this region.

They tell us about who they are now, what formed them, what sustains them and what challenges them. They speak of the ordinary and extraordinary in their lives. These stories are of the present and the past, of family, of rich, long-lived lives, full of love and loss, joy and mischief.

Creative Team: Puti Lancaster, Teresa Woodham, Catherine Wilkin, Lloyd Scott, Kristyl Neho, John Gibson, Janis Cheng, Judith Crozier, Matiu Whiting.
