Basement Theatre

There is a constant need for indigenous and children of diaspora in Oceania to tell our own stories.

Aotearoa has experienced massive growth and popularity of spoken word poetry as young poets take to writing and sharing their own stories.

However, there exists an extensive wealth of literature written by Pacific and Maori pioneers, left unspoken and unshared in performance spaces.

Upu Mai WhetŪ will revive the words, the upu, of the early stars of Maori and Pacific literature.

Rediscover the way we came as we breathe the past into the present using our current Maori and Pacific stars of stage and screen.
