16 Sep 2018 - 29 Jun 2022

Short Synopsis


Best Theatre
Best Performance (Theatre)
Basement Theatre Migration Award
Auckland Arts Festival Fringe Award
[Auckland Fringe 2018]


Told with aroha and striking originality, The Contours of Heaven combines the forms of verbatim theatre, live vocal harmonies and movement, to tell the real stories of six young people from Te Matau a Māui, The Hawkes Bay.

Ride the wave of these stories of love and loss, hopes and fears in this one woman tour-de-force performed by Ana Chaya Scotney (The Breaker Upperers).
