The VulturesÂ is the new play byÂ MÄ«ria GeorgeÂ and premiered in the acclaimed theatre and dance platform,Â Kia MauÂ Festival.Â The VulturesÂ features design byÂ Natala Gwiazdzinski,Â SopheakÂ Seng,Â Tony De GoldiÂ andÂ Kâ€™Saba.
Sister Nurse Hinemoa and her siblings -Â Magazine Magnate Atawhai and Prodigious Businessman Petera -Â were raised in the glow of privilege;Â enjoying a whakapapa of sailing on the lake, gin with Indian tonic water, Coppertone on tanned MÄori skin and a seemingly endless summer.
Long after their childhood at the lake, the race for wealth and empire have splintered the whanau and now too their children.Â Daughter of Hinemoa is Child Scientist, Kiwi, and son of Petera is Champion Gymnast, Te RÄwhitiroa…Â of course Atawhai never had children;Â she prefers the company of her award-winning horses.Â Meanwhile, cousins Kiwi and Te RÄwhitiroa have grown up estranged from one another.
Finally, the siblings have been called together:Â the Sister Nurse, the Magazine Magnate, and the Prodigious Businessman. They must agree to expand the empire â€“ even if it means destroying the world in the process.Â
