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.
