October is just about upon us and that means UPU will be taking to the stage! Watch this video from rehearsals to find out more about Understanding UPU
Curated by award-winning poet Grace Iwashita-Taylor and led by powerhouse director Fasitua Amosa, UPU gives the stage to Oceania’s most electrifying poetry. Ben Brown, Karlo Mila, Albert Wendt and more: UPU is for the trailblazers, the icons and the new writers transforming Aotearoa today.
In UPU, borders disappear and for just over an hour, the theatre becomes a sea of Islands. Be transported across
an ocean to hear the voices dealing with colonisation, family, climate change, love, sex, religion, power and tourists.
