Faovale Imperium

  • The Dowse Art Museum 45 Laings Road Lower Hutt, Wellington, 5010 New Zealand (map)
Three people sitting on steps drinking coca-cola in the sun.

Wellington’s premiere Comedian (James Nokise) and DJ (Don Luchito) team up to showcase a counter narrative to the romanticised voyages of James Cook though the Pacific. A heady mixture of irreverent history, pacific poetry, dynamic soundscapes – it’s like the Disney film Moana... told by two guys who don’t look like The Rock, who even combined wouldn’t be the same size as The Rock. 

Performance duration: 50 minutes


Faovale Imperium is part of the Kia Mau Festival 2018
