Bookmarks: Mere Boynton - once a warrior

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 2:21 pm on 11 September 2019

Mere Tokorahi Boynton is a singer and actor - she's most famous for her role as Mavis in the movie Once Were Warriors. It was there where she first got to showcase both her acting and singing in the same role.

She is one of the performers in the upcoming world premiere of "Witi's Wahine", a theatre show that celebrates the many inspirational female characters created by one of New Zealand's best known, most loved writers, Witi Ihimaera. The show features Boynton alongside other acclaimed actors, musicians and kapahaka champions - and debuts with three shows at Lawson Field theatre in Gisborne over Saturday and Sunday October 5 and 6th as part of the Tairawhiti Arts Festival.
