*There is a Choose Your Price Kōwhiria Tō Utu session on Sunday 3 March at 4pm. Book here.
Following on from the triumphant production of Wild Dogs Under My Skirt at festivals around the world, including the 2018 New Zealand Festival, FCC theatre company is back, bringing to ferocious life Tusiata Avia’s The Savage Coloniser Book, for which she became the first female Pasifika poet to win the Ockham Award for poetry.
Under the artful direction of the equally formidable Anapela Polata’ivao, Avia’s unapologetic and clear-eyed examination of race and racism, the colonised and the coloniser, is full of bold humour, courage and lacerating truths.
Fierce, furious and fabulously unforgiving, The Savage Coloniser Show is theatre that is as provocative as it is necessary – and a red-hot Festival ticket you should fear missing out on.
Originally commissioned by Auckland Arts Festival.
