He Māori? | TAHI Festival 2022
What does it mean to reclaim Māoritanga from a Pākehā upbringing?
Returning to BATS after a sold-out first season, Isaac Martyn will lead the audience on a journey from total confusion to partial understanding - weaving together elements of stand-up comedy, waiata, and theatrical performance to explore the doubt, celebration, and the complicated nature of identity.
He aha? He Māori? Is he? Maybe - it depends.
"Isaac Martyn's delivery and script feels honest, full of charisma and aroha...This is local theatre doing what it does best – challenging us while telling the stories of this land." - John Anderson, Theatreview, 2022
Performer & Playwright: Isaac Martyn (Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Te Arawa, Ngāti Pākehā) | Producer & Production Manager: James Heath
