Kinetic Wayfinding and Martin Hautus Institute proudly present the premiere of Digital Winds.
Digital Winds is a play about a teenage love story that ends in tragedy. The story, however, will capture joy and spontaneity of dance, music, and comedy that is part of youth culture and its cultivated cool exterior.
Growing up in a sophisticated world of expectations teenagers have developed a language code all their own. A ‘Tumblr’ of digital self projection that can enhance or tear to pieces ones perception.
The play will be performed by young performers new to the stage working alongside seasoned professionals. The production will be a high energy piece of urban youth culture. Giving voice to urban Pasifika youth born and raised in Aotearoa navigating their way through Digital Winds.
