It's also part of a week long Kupe inspired series of events starting with tonight's Waka Odyssey. This is also the farewell festival for its three time Artistic Director, Shelagh Magadza. Standing Room Only presenter Lynn Freeman is hoping for three weeks of jaw-dropping shows and new experiences. She joins Susie Ferguson in the studio.
