Maumahara Girlie

An activated receipt. An extended subtweet of colonisation.

An activated receipt. An extended subtweet of colonisation. I am mana whenua online, finding soil in digital platforms. The destruction of waterways is the destruction of history; wet tears and live streams.

Maumahara Girlie is a contemporary theatre show exploring the lives of Maori grappling with internalised whakama and colonisation. It is visual installation, performance, myth and seminar.

Based on the interactive script for Window Gallery, Girlie is mokopuna and kuia; generations returning to a marae in Te Waipounamu.

Created by Mya Morrison-Middleton in collaboration with Whetu Silver, Freddy Carr, Amanda Tito and Onehou Strickland. Produced by Vanessa Crofskey.
