Maori performance mask (Te Mata Kokako o Rēhia)
 comes to life as Regan Taylor unfolds an adaptation of Shakespeare’s Othello as a solo performance.

SolOthello weaves together Shakespeare’s original prose, modern English and Te Reo Māori to deliver a dynamic and cheeky interpretation of one of history’s more tragic plays.

Intricately carved masks, each a beautiful work of art in themselves, are used to express the personality of some of Shakespeare’s most colourful characters: Othello, Iago, Roderigo, and Desdemona.

“The masks, masterfully crafted with aroha by maker Tristan Marler, are exquisite. The etched moko glimmer with detail under the stage light. The performer’s tongue flicks out from under the half mask. It’s as if the ancestors, carved on the beams of the wharenui, have jumped off and sprung into fresh and blood life.” - James Wenley, Theatre Scenes

“Highly enjoyable and rewarding; a bravura performance.” - Joy Green, Theatreview
