PROJECTS

A flat-warming party on 30th November - the eve of World AIDS Day. Three strangers have turned up, uninvited. As they drag the skeletons out of the closet, the new tenants realise they are more intricately connected with the past than they ever imagined. 

Inspired by the NZ Memorial AIDS Quilt Project, our people who lost their battle with HIV/AIDS are acknowledged and remembered.

This 2021 professional cast and creative team are proud members of the LGBTQi+ community, as we at Tuatara Collective believe it is important that we tell our own stories.

To keep up the demand of the panicked and chaotic shoppers who raid the store of essential items daily, a night-shift has been established by Fresh Choice management to restock the shelves.

4 South Auckland employees volunteer to take on these new shifts to avoid having to deal with crazy customers. However, they soon realise that dealing with crazy customers is far better than having to deal with each other for 9 hours straight.
