"Powerful piece of theatre - pulls out all the stops " Dominion Post
Sister Nurse Hinemoa and her siblings, Magazine Magnate Atawhai and Prodigious Businessman Petera, were raised in the glow of privilege – enjoying a whakapapa of sailing on the lake, gin with their Indian Tonic Water, Coppertone on tanned Māori skin and a seemingly endless summer. Long after their childhood at the Lake, the race for wealth and empire have splintered the whanau and now too their children.
Daughter of Hinemoa is Child Scientist Kiwi and son of Petera is Champion Gymnast Te Rāwhitiroa. Of course Atawhai never had children, she prefers the company of her award winning horses.
Written and directed by Miria George and starring Nicola Kawana, Te Kohe Tuhaka, Erina Daniels, Ani-Piki Tuari and Kimo Houltham.
The Vultures premiered in the acclaimed theatre and dance platform, Kia Mau Festival. The Vultures features design by Natala Gwiazdzinski, Sopheak Seng, Tony De Goldi & K*Saba.
