MAORI TAKES ON OTHELLO
CURATED FOR RUTAS BY NATIVE EARTH

This October, Native Earth invites you to Aki Studio for Te RÄ“hia Theatre Company's SolOthello, part of Aluna Theatre's RUTAS panamericas. It is a bold and humorous Maori twist on the classic tragedy in which Te Reo, original prose, and contemporary English come together. Using traditional Maori masks (Te Mata Kokako o Rehia), this solo interpretation of Othello puts the spotlight on Iago, Rodrigo, Othello and Desdemona, and places them in the context of a war between tribes in pre-colonial New Zealand. About SolOthello
