Aotearoa New Zealand
The world of Oceania is not small. From the energetic volcanoes of O’ahu to the southern reaches of Aotearoa, she is borderless and vast – and growing bigger by the day. After decades of dismissal and disconnection, her children are closer than ever. It’s time for a reunion.

Silo Theatre’s first production for 2020 brings the wealth and power of Pacific literature to roaring theatrical life. Curated by award-winning poet Grace Taylor and led by powerhouse director Fasitua Amosa, UPU gives the stage to Oceania’s most electrifying poetry. Ben Brown, Karlo Mila, Albert Wendt and more: UPU is for the trailblazers, the icons and the new writers transforming Aotearoa today.

Following two knock-out Matariki seasons at the Basement Theatre, UPU is a remix, a re-imagining, an all-star line-up of leading Māori and Pasefika performers reviving the words of our literary legends and bellowing out the proclamations and provocations of the next game-changing generation.

“This show is pure oratory and storytelling at its finest.” - Theatrescenes (NZ)
"A must-see.” - Tearaway (NZ)

Curated by Grace Taylor
