About the performance

Inspired by H Guthrie Smith’s (1921) Tutira: The Story of an NZ Sheep Station, Ecology in Fifths unravels the NZ myth of a ‘clean green and natural landscape’ — revealing the environmental tensions that lie underneath our grassy paddocks and forest canopies.

 

This new work by The Playground had its first development season in 2010, when it received glowing feedback from test audiences and reached its goals in presenting an excellent first draft of the production. It is now scheduled for choreographic development and a premiere tour in 2020, starting with Te Whaea in Wellington, followed by La MaMa theatre in New York City, and Hawkes Bay Arts Festival in Hastings.
