Here & Now Festival 2017
Mouth: Tongue: Teeth
by Niu Wave Collective
22 APR - 23 APR 2017 — Spoken Word
Auckland Theatre Company
ASB Waterfront Theatre
40 minutes, no interval
Contains occasional use of strong language. Recommended for ages 15+
With a whisper and a whimsical backbeat, this is a spoken word show where the audience interaction helps to fuel the action. Circling the Pacific, poets talk about ancestral teeth and lost mother tongues, and when the past collides with the present they are in a dentist’s chair in suburban Auckland. This is life, love and living through the MOUTH, TONGUE, TEETH.
Niu Wave Collective is a fresh poetry collective, comprised of six of Auckland’s most exciting up-and-coming Spoken Word Artists. Their work focuses on creating Spoken Word from the borders. Finding space and making waves, their six individual voices blend to embody a Niu Wave of spoken word artists that are fearlessly creating authentic connection in and through their unique lived experiences.
