Bringing life to museum collections!

Bringing our issues to the forefront!

Massive Company's South and Central Ensembles are 'bringing it', as part of Auckland's War Memorial Museum Urbanlife project which aims to give youth a platform to express their views on the city they live in.

Six groups of rangatahi (15-24yrs) from across the city have tackled the big issues: employment, housing, culture, education, economic well-being and environment. The process started with the museum collections and used photos from the museum’s pictorial collections to spark inspiration, including the work of two female photographers Margaret Matilda White and Una Garlick. The issue Massive is addressing is economic wellbeing.

We make theatre. We use our own stories. It's physical. It's about our community, our own well-being, in our own economy (family, church, commitments). It's our side of the story.

Come see Massive South & Central Ensemble - together for the first time - performing live at the Museum with three unique performances - 11am, 1pm, 3pm.
