Auckland Arts Festival 2020
Silo Theatre’s first production for 2020 brings the wealth and power of Pacific literature to roaring theatrical life. Curated by award-winning poet Grace Taylor and led by powerhouse director Fasitua Amosa, UPU gives the stage to Oceania’s most electrifying poetry. Ben Brown, Karlo Mila, Albert Wendt and more: UPU is for the trailblazers, the icons and the new writers transforming Aotearoa today.
Following two knock-out Matariki seasons at the Basement Theatre, UPU is a remix, a re-imagining, an all-star line-up of leading Māori and Pasefika performers reviving the words of our literary legends and bellowing out the proclamations and provocations of the next game-changing generation.
