2030, Rotorua. Aotearoa is facing the worst heat wave it has even seen. Members of Kaitiaki Taonga, Aotearoa’s leading climate change action group, are gathering for their final meeting before the end of the year, but Hine has other plans.
Hearing the news that the government is scheming to undo three years of the group’s hard work, Hine is tipped over the edge, determined to take a monumental stand against the government. What ensues is an acid infused, f-the-system riot.
Heatwave. An intimate evening with your destruction. Heatwave is here to blow apart the exasperation felt by us - millennials trying to make the best of our battered inheritance. We are the ones we've been waiting for.
Created by Grace Augustine, Heatwave features an incredible cast of makers including Alice Pearce, Bronwyn Ensor, Hakaia Daly, Sam Goodger, Alex Tunui, Matiu Kereama, Shaan Kesha and Georgina Briggs, as well as musician Chris Marshall.
