A theatre group in South Auckland is using classic English literature to break down negative stereotypes surrounding Maori and Pasifika people in New Zealand.
The Black Friars theatre company is made up of mainly Pasifika young adults who for the last ten years have been re-telling Shakespeare plays within a Polynesian context.
Their aim? To keep talented Pasifika and Maori youth off the street and on the stage.
Indira Stewart checked out their play Macbeth which is currently showing at the Mangere Arts Centre in Mangere.
