The theatre comes to Eastside Gallery!

Golden Bay actor and director Martine Baanvinger is touring her award winning show “Solitude - the secret life of Annie Chaffey” through New Zealand as part of the Arts on Tour selection 2019.

Martine Baanvinger has always been fascinated by the late Annie Chaffey, who in 1913, moved into a remote hut with her lover Henry in the mountains of Kahurangi National Park and lived there for forty years. The play is about Annie’s “love, loneliness, loss and laughter in raw exile,” says Martine.

The Dutch born actor, who received her training at the theatre academy in Amsterdam, now lives in Golden Bay where she founded the theatre company DramaLab. She’s also been training with Zen Zen Zo Physical Theatre Company from Australia (now also in Christchurch) for the last six years.

Golden Bay musician Mark Manson created the soundtrack for the play. For Mark it was a chance to present the sound of native birds, Annie’s daily reality, as an extension of electronic music.
