Kingsley Meluish to perform at Auckland Writers Festival
Multi-instrumentalist Kingsley Melhuish will join a line-up of Māori writers on May 16th for a night of storytelling interwoven with music, inspired by the new book Pūrākau: Māori Myths Retold.
Imagine a sensual retelling of Tāne’s creation of Hine, Māui as a beleaguered sports star, or an Aotearoa where whakapapa is downloaded via app.
Whiti Hereaka (who edited Pūrākau with Witi Ihimaera), Kelly Joseph, Nic Low, Tina Makereti, Paula Morris, and Regan Taylor (reading for Vancouver-based David Geary) will be storytelling in an hour of mythic magic.
