CARRIAGEWORKS, CONCERTGEBOUW BRUGGE AND TJIBAOU CULTURAL CENTRE PRESENT

STONES IN HER MOUTH

LEMI PONIFASIO / MAU

Lemi Ponifasio and his company MAU return to Carriageworks with the Australian premiere of Stones In Her Mouth. A ten-member ensemble of Maori women articulate a powerful and undisguised challenge – voiced through the Maori language, genealogy, spirituality and ceremony. Drawing on the Maori tradition of women as the writers of poetry and chant, MAUā€™s ensemble gives expression to resiliency and outrage in the face of social and political change. Through oratory, choral-work and dance, Stones In Her Mouth gives voice to intense personal emotions and holds a mirror to contemporary life.
