MANA MOANA water screen for Matariki: Themes of ocean, migration and diaspora are projected onto a screen of water on Whairepo Lagoon. (45 minute loop).
Created by Jess & Rob, parents from our very own school community, the 10 pieces come from the Mana Moana – Pacific Voices campaign launched for the UN climate conference COP26 in Glasgow in November 2021.
They will feature, along with some new work, in the Mana Moana water screen running at Whairepo Lagoon from 6pm daily, 30 June to 4 July (show runs on a loop, for about 45 minutes).
The short films from the Mana Moana Collective are a collaboration between Māori and Pacifica visual artists, musicians, writers and choreographers. They bring the people and issues of Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa right on to our capital’s waterfront.
Congrats to Jess & Rob and their crew at Storybox on an awesome piece of mahi!
