Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand


Thursday 20th August 2020

After 100 years of remembrances, it is time to look closer at the lingering connection we have to "the great war/world war one". A debate, with each side saying how 'great' the war was. On one side; a conscientious objector (Archibald Baxter), an antiwar general (General Smedley Butler) & a child of a soldier. On the other side, the royal cousins; a kaizar, a czar & a king. Telling these stories with masks and music, a gREAT rAW dances through the fabric of time to bring us a series of monologues to see how we can reconstruct our relationships with those who have gone before and awaken our perceptions of the past. How/why was the war so "great"? Whose stories do we listen to? Have you got an opinion? As the masked characters return from a century ago to come to life again, they share their memories as an encouraging prompt to you to reflect on your own histories.
