Flowing Water - A theatrical event by Witi Ihimaera, Tom Roa and Janet Jennings

A world premier for a Waikato story
Flowing Water

A Hamilton première for a Waikato story. Singing, acting, kapa haka, film and dance come together in a ground-breaking and dazzling musical drama, written and produced specially for the Hamilton Gardens Arts Festival 2018. Flowing Water tells the epic story of the Waikato River and all the peoples nurtured by the river – Māori, Pakeha and later migrants in a landmark production supported by Tainui. The Maori scenes have been devised by Tom Roa. 

Directed by John Drummond, the thrilling première features a large cast of leading performers with strong local links. Acclaimed writer Witi Ihimaera wraps his magic around the story of the Waikato River and brings it to life for family and friends to enjoy. “The story of the Waikato River,” he says, “is the story of New Zealand. We are proud to put the Waikato at the forefront of our country’s history.”
