Maori director praises Te Papa for taking artistic risks

From Te Manu Korihi, 5:52 pm on 1 December 2014

It's the first time a quartet of Maori plays has been performed at the national museum, Te Papa Tongarewa. The director, who's a well-known actor and theatre director, Jim Moriaty, says it's brave of Te Papa to showcase the works, which he says are a confrontational take on New Zealand's history. Te Manu Kōrihi reporter Laura Bootham talked to people taking part in rehearsals.
