“Oh. And it’s pronounced ‘who-ee’.”
What does it mean to be misunderstood by a world that refuses to understand you?
Two strangers meet each other in a room waiting for different reasons.
Sharing stories about themselves, they find that they are connected to each other in more ways than one. And they’re fighting a system that’s forcing them into categories they’re unsure they belong in.
Devised and performed by Hinerangimarie Berryman (Waikato Tainui and Tuwharetoa) and Benny Marama (Kūki ‘Āirani), Hui (Pronounced ‘Who-ee’) is an exploration of identity told through music and theatre. Funny, heart-breaking, and unapologetically brown, the show explores the collision between different cultures and the common ground that can be found between both.
Hui (Pronounced ‘Who-ee’) is supported by The Meteor’s Boil Up Creative Development programme.
