Banana Boat is a loose bunch of Pasifika and Maori creatives.
Originally an initiative of Playmarket back in late 2008, it took on a life of its own as not just a bunch of Pasifika writers, but a collective of creatives who wanted more from New Zealand theatre than what they were getting at the time. They used to meet once a month in Newton, Auckland but that phase has passed.
Banana Boat and Playmarket parted ways amicably in 2010, with Banana Boat achieving charitable trust status in late 2011.
