What to Expect

Creative Mercury Bay presents MUNTED, ground-breaking documentary theatre about the Canterbury September 22nd earthquake, brought to Whitianga by NZ Arts on Tour and Creative Mercury Bay.

The Christchurch earthquake brought an obscure word into common usage – ‘Munted’, meaning wrecked, damaged or ruined. A month after the earthquake, Bare Hunt Collective returned to Christchurch and interviewed members of the Christchurch community: MUNTED is a theatrical response to the Canterbury 22 February 2011 earthquake, derived exclusively from interviews with those who experienced it, including Cantabrians, members of the media and other New Zealanders. Three performers bring 15 people to vivid life in this hour-long show: From a dentist buried in a hole filled with liquefaction, to a TV cameraman stuck on the roof of his building, to a school teacher and a four year old boy – these are shared stories of hope and loss, finding laughter amongst grief, and a strengthened community in the heart of a shaken city. Performance begins promptly at 7:00 pm Monkey House Theatre, Coghill Street, Whitianga Tickets: $15 – available from Whitianga Paper Plus Seating: General Admission Bookings: Whitianga Paper Plus
