Told with Aroha and striking originality through verbatim theatre, live vocal harmonies and movement this one-woman show performed by Ana Chaya Scotney (The Breaker Upperers), tells the real stories of six young people from Te Matau a Māui, Hawke’s Bay.

‘Without doubt this was one of the best performances I have ever seen.’ – Theatreview

Contours of Heaven was the standout performance of 2018 winning awards for Best Theatre, Best Performance (Theatre), Basement Theatre Migration Award and Auckland Arts Festival Fringe Award at the Auckland Fringe Awards and the Excellence Award for Best Overall Production at the Auckland Theatre Awards.

‘With little more than an existing stairway, a mixing pedal and a mic, Scotney enlivens her characters precisely through song, beatbox, dialogue and dance..I am not the only one struck by tears..’ – The Hook
