Ka Mua, Ka Muri                                                  Walking Backwards into the Future

Navigating our future, holding the past in our sight.  

Tipping into the unknown.    

We gaze ahead.  We survey the landscape.  

We carry in our bones those before us.

As our ancestors navigated their way by the stars, we too look up to the stars. 

Strong visceral energy.  Gutsy and loud. Beautiful and quiet.

There is light in the darkness, there are pools of light.  

There is a beam of light revealing sightings.

An honest portrayal of the extreme power of love, The Wholehearted is a heart-warming devised theatre work that spans generations, genders and cultures. A mix of characters tenderly and humorously share with us their search for a wholehearted way of life, exploring what people do in the pursuit of love and how love changes us.

Journeys of heartbreak, grief and loss are charmingly and vigorously transformed by the ensemble to the courage, compassion and joy that exists within each of us.
