Scotty Cotter reflects on the origins of his creativity, the communities that have supported him in his career, and what he wants to offer to the future of the arts.

Moana Nui is a curated digital experience of live performance from Kia Mau Festival. From full-length theatre and dance shows filmed in season at Kia Mau; to the raw and intimate final rehearsal room performances as artists prepare for their Opening Night. 

Moana Nui also features Ahi Kā, sharing profiles of artists from Wellington, Auckland and Christchurch - all of whom are from Aotearoa and Te Moana-nui-a-Kiva. Ahi Kā is a dynamic collaboration with independent Māori filmmakers from Te Ūpoko-o-te-ika-a-Māui - fusing together artists from theatre, dance, music, literature & film.
