HBAF2020 Presents - Shel We?

101 Hastings Street South, Hastings, Hastings

Shel We?
Inspired by the works of renowned American writer Shel Silverstein, Shel We? is an invitation. An enchanting, playfully intriguing, and visually stunning dance show.

Shel Silverstein was a critically acclaimed writer of children’s books such as Where the Sidewalk Ends, Falling Up and most notably The Giving Tree. He was a talented lyricist and wrote iconic ballads such as Sylvia’s Mother for Doctor Hook and A Boy Named Sue for Johnny Cash.

Shel’s off beat style and brilliant use of metaphorical imagery in his poetry and illustrations is what inspires Tupua’s choreography - ultimately delivering a tribute to his parents, his family and the environment that has inspired him over the years.

Tupua Tigafua is a highly accomplished dancer and one of the most ingenious storytellers of his generation. After dancing with some of Aotearoa's creative elite such as New Zealand Dance Company, Black Grace and MAU, Tupua has masterfully created an enchanting, playfully intriguing and visually stunning dance show that can be enjoyed by the whole family and appeals to different generations from all walks of life.
