Jason Te Kare - Glimmer

From Standing Room Only, 1:35 pm on 26 June 2016

Twenty years ago Jason Te Kare was a nervous new actor making his debut in Hone Kouka's play, Waiora - Te-u-ko-pai. Also in the cast was the hugely experienced Rawiri Paratene. Fast forward to now and Waiora is being restaged in Christchurch, Jason's new script Glimmer is about to open and Rawiri will perform in both Te Reo Maori and English in the Briar Grace Smith play, Purapurawhetu. Justin Gregory got the two together to talk about the state of Maori theatre in 2016 and to take them back to Waiora.
