Event description
Join us at Te Papa for an innovative live cinema experience that tells a story of success, acceptance and identity.

About this event

A multi-art form bringing together theatre, dance, music and film like you've never seen before.

A new door opens for Hemi and Anna as they’re accepted into the prestigious ‘Camp Mana,’ a program designed to prepare promising school leavers to succeed in the ‘real’ world. The pair come from a low socio-economic area and are given the opportunity to defy the odds. But there’s always a catch – how much will they have to give up to succeed?

“Code-Switch” is a collaborative live cinema experience combining film, dance and live stage theatre that explores what happens to young people when dreams, values, and social contexts clash. Follow the illusions and disillusionment of two students whose lives are a little bit like all of ours: Hemi, the artistic and naive blank slate, and Anna, the ambitious and determined over-achiever. From choosing between passion and financial stability, to juggling the pressures of family and culture, the decisions they make will have consequences – whether they like it or not.

“The young actors are splendid and convey emotion beyond their years...” NZ Herald.

“A real triumph with slick editing and fantastic work by the audio visual team deploying serious skill to help move the story along.” - Manawatu Guardian

"A unique blend of film, dance, spoken word and stage theatre, it truly was a fine display of live cinema" - Hon. Carmel Sepuloni
