Comment on review of “Wahine Mātātoa: the (mostly) true story of Erihāpeti Pātahi” – Comedy protects audience from our painful history of (ongoing) colonisation and sexism – What a lovely evocative review by Angela, of an exceptional theatre tour de force that does indeed ‘resonate’, and deserves to be seen nationwide. Wahine Matatoa would surely be an asset to any Festival, and an admirable international representative of Aotearoa. The moving script by Cindy Diver (Kai Tahu), first presented by Otepoti Theatre Lab in 2023, has been nurtured and brought to vivid life by an extraordinary group of accomplished and generous creatives, as well as the four charismatic actors. Ka Pai, Wahine Matatoa and Otepoti/Dunedin theatre!
