‘My Name is Moana’ is an intimate 90-minute tribute to the ocean led by singer/songwriter Moana - Art Laureate, inductee into the NZ Music Hall of Fame and 2019 Distinguished Alumni (University of Auckland). This show celebrates our relationship as New Zealanders to the Ocean through a mixture of music, myth and personal anecdote. An intimate, uplifting and often humorous experience, “My Name is Moana” includes garage party classics as well as those inspirational songs which have taken Moana and her musicians across 30 countries.
Arts On Tour NZ (AOTNZ) organises tours of outstanding New Zealand performers to rural and smaller centres in New Zealand. The trust receives funding from Creative New Zealand as well as support from Central Lakes Trust, Community Trust of Southland, Interislander, Otago Community Trust, Rata Foundation and the Southern Trust. AOTNZ liaises with local arts councils, repertory theatres and community groups to bring the best of musical and theatrical talent to country districts. The AOTNZ programme is environmentally sustainable – artists travel to their audiences rather than audiences required to do the travelling!
Doors - 6.30pm, Performance from 7.00 pm
