Created on Easter Island, this show comes from stone. Stone has a tale to tell, a tale that reaches to the stars and has a place on Earth. Discover a cosmic story carved out through myth, imaginings, song and physicality.

'Rapanui - the song of stone' is a one-person show. The writer and performer, Lisa Allan, wrote the script during a 5-week visit to Rapa Nui (Easter Island, Chile). She began her journey with a dawn visit to Rapanui (Shag Rock, Christchurch). These two sites have connections to the Waitaha people of New Zealand and parts of their little-known story are woven into this show.

Lisa has been creating original, NZ theatre since 2002 with companies such as The Loopen Experiment (Christchurch), Blackbird Theatre (Christchurch) and Body in Space (Nelson). This story brings to light an important piece of New Zealand's history and connects us to our star ancestors.

'Hold stone close, hear its song... and let your heart remember.'
