For The Fallen Performance IG FB Promo.png

A moving tribute showcase, FOR THE FALLEN commemorates ANZAC 2024 featuring 8 of New Zealand's most exciting up-and-coming actors, as well as an ensemble of vibrant rangatahi (young people) from Katikati and the wider Western Bay/Tauranga Moana region. 

Held at the iconic Forta Leza Restaurant in Katikati, this venue will transform into the taverns and public houses of Europe and North Africa during WWI and WWII - Italy, Crete, Greece, Turkey.  With war-time songs, dance and text including letters from the front, personal accounts from local veterans, and a collection of poetry by Alistair Te Ariki Campbell, these performances will celebrate and remember our fallen ancestors.

Starring Poroaki Merritt-McDonald, Tutakangahau Teepa, Hohaia Reihana, Manahi Taoho, Taame Koria, Dalaye Waruwhakamaharatanga Taoho, Kaitara Coker and Heretini Fidow.
