Kia orana
Tena koutou

BANANA BOAT BUSINESS

Jenni spread the word on the Asian Ink initiative.

COMING UP

Jonathan’s got fingers in all sorts of pies. I quickly lost track of what he’s going up so I suggest you just Facebook him.

The Pollywood 2012 submission deadline is Friday 31 August. Get shootin’, rockin’ and choppin’.

Kila Kokonut Krew’s tenth anniversary remounting of The Taro King is in its last days – matter of fact, it closes on Friday 24 August 2012.

Suli Moa‘s A Heart’s Path is going up in October.

SCRIPT READINGS

Leilani’s Church St was read by Rob, Jenni, Jonathan and Tanya, with script directions read by Kahurangi. Everyone wanted more; David whined that it was unfinished but was a sole voice of whiney-bitchiness. The group was heartened by the Q&A that followed and look forward to its next stage of development.

NEXT FONO

– will be on Thursday 27 September at the Toi Ora Live Art Studio, 6 Putiki Street, Grey Lynn.

Apologies were received from James Nokise, Kahurangi Carter, and Geraldine Warren.

BANANA BOAT BUSINESS

David apologised profusely to Arnette for not crediting her for running the previous month’s fono (the minutes have been very belatedly fixed).  Just this once, she stayed her hand, and David understood just how lucky he was.

COMING UP

Enter the Banana winner Suli Moa‘s A Heart’s Path will have its world premiere in October as part of the 2012 Matala Tongan Festival.  When we know more, you will know more.

Kila Kokonut Krew’s tenth anniversary remounting of The Taro King is due at the Mangere Arts Centre 16-21 August 2012.

JenniLouise and David reported on the reading of Goretti Chadwick’s Galulolo (Tsunami), which they attended earlier in the evening.  Auckland Theatre Company will be be mounting Galulolo 11-20 October 2012.

SCRIPT READINGS

The July fono was just spoilt with not one but two readings:  Aroha‘s short play, Poi; and Jason‘s short story, Mae.  Man, we’re spoilt alright.

NEXT FONO
