Juanita Hepi

From Sunday Afternoon, 1:10 pm on 13 August 2023

Hine Hoia is a new multi-artform work from director Juanita Hepi (Kai Tahu, Waitaha, Kati Mamoe, Ngati Mutunga, Moriori, Ngati Kahungunu, Ngati Wai, Ngapuhi), circus arts expert Danny Lee Syme and composer Hamish Oliver. Inspired by the narrative of Stravinsky and Ramuz's Histoire du soldat (The Soldier's Tale) in which a soldier makes a pact with the Devil in return for great wealth, Juanita Hepi has set the story in 1918 Aotearoa, in a country ravaged by the New Zealand wars and the Spanish flu pandemic. She talks with Bryan Crump on RNZ Concert's Three To Seven programme.
