In the beginning there was the sky, the sea and a rock… And then came 'Mixed Nuts 3: Mythical'!

Strange, beautiful, weird and mythical Pasifika creatures from myths and legends who will come alive in the different Mangere Arts Centre spaces performing contemporary cross-cultural dances, songs, physical theatre and music. Exciting inter-arts adventure from February 27th to March the 2nd, definitely something for everyone!

Have fun with the cheeky hip-hopping Maori demi-god ‘Maui’; don’t get burned by ‘Pele’, the beautiful singing Hawaiian Goddess of fire; meet the beautiful but mysterious dancing twins ‘Taema & Tilafaiga’ of the Tatau (i.e. the Samoan tattoo); watch out for the cut-throat Tongan dance duet ‘Hina and Sinilau’; and behold the mighty power of ‘Nafanua’, the Samoan Goddess of war!; and much, much more.

Watch these mythical legends come alive as you are transported through time and space. Following the great success and popularity of Mixed Nuts and Mixed Nuts 2: Underworld, both of which featured on Fresh TV (i.e. TV 2) and Maori TV, ‘Mixed Nuts 3: Mythical’ is stronger, fresher, enlightening and more innovatively Pacific!

Lima Productions is about supporting and developing our emerging Pacific performing artists giving them performance experience through professionally developed shows. So you are getting the best of the new and the fresh out of training who are a force to be reckoned with. Lima has been going from strength to strength since starting in 2008. Bringing you an exciting mix of live promenade style, interactive performances, Lima Productions have been at the forefront of innovative Pacific performing arts.

‘If Lima is anything to go by, Pacific contemporary performing arts are thriving. Mixed Nuts 2- Underworld brings the spirit of the Pacific, fresh and sparkling, into the now but with haunting tones of the ta and va of the past. An invigorating mix that the audience clearly appreciates and enjoys’ (Dr. Lynda Ashly, Theatre Review 2012)

‘They bring spark, soul and joy into the space. If anything ails you, you'll forget all about it for the duration’ (Natalie Dowd, Theatre Review 2011)
