KA MUA, KA MURI  |  WALKING BACKWARDS INTO THE FUTURE. 

Three smart and sassy characters are navigating their future, traversing the many pitfalls of being young women in today’s world. For anyone who has a sister, mother, grandmother or daughter, this contemporary and gutsy piece of theatre will take you on a whirlwind of a journey.

SIGHTINGS encapsulates what it means to have arrived in Aotearoa, to have been born here, to have ancestors whose bones are in our soil. Told by five gutsy young women, this work is funny, deep, dark and delightful.

“Moments of laughter were interspersed with pain, hope with devastation, love with hate. It was this complexity that made SIGHTINGS so compelling... It was a chaos of emotions and thoughts that showcased the strength of women.”
— JENNIFER CHEUK: 'TEARAWAY'
