Glenn Colquhoun and Richard Nunns visit Northland

Glenn Richard  sml Glenn Colquhoun and Richard Nunns visit NorthlandLast week in May 13, I traveled with Richard Nunns expert in ng taonga puoro and poet Glenn Colquhoun to the Far North. They took their art to schools and libraries and visited little schools in very remote areas. The welcome, interest and warmth we experienced was wonderful. It was a trip organized by the NZ Book Council and my photos document part of their journey ‘The Two Doctors Tour’.

NZ Book Council: Glenn Colquhoun and Richard Nunns toured Northland, and this is what a student from Kaitaia College thought.’I have never heard poetry like that before. In classes, on paper, in films, poetry was one dimensional for me until now. To see it filled with life and power and passion was so incredible for me as an audience member and an aspiring writer.’

That’s beautiful.

The Green Fire Islands Tour 2012…Day 2

…it’s 10.30pm and I think am a little tired…! Did we just arrived 28 hours ago!? Hence not many words other than – it was a great day. Over the course of the day all arrived. Aotearoa and Ireland are here. Just beautiful to see everyone again. Wonderful and important meeting to get to know each other, to reconnect and to acknowledge the past production and embrace the path, joys and challenges ahead. A lovely vibrant energy is in the air. The day finished with a sound check in the dance studio of the Tyrone Guthrie Centre where most rehearsals will take place…let some photos tell the story of day 2…
