“Imitation is the sincerest form of flattery that mediocrity can pay to greatness”. 

Inspiration, appropriation, re-interpretation… or just good old stealing? Can we ever really claim ownership of our ideas, and why is it so darn satisfying to hear pop songs we hate sung in someone else’s dulcet tones?

Cover Lover brings together a raucous bunch of 25 of Auckland’s most beloved actors, dancers and musicians to honour and interrogate the treasured ‘cover’ version.

Directed by Jessie McCall and unknowingly contributed to by artists everywhere.
