He Māori?

by Isaac Martyn

What does it mean to reclaim Māoritanga from a Pākehā upbringing? That’s the premise of Isaac Martyn’s (Ngāti Tūwharetoa, Te Arawa) show, which weaves together elements of stand-up comedy, waiata and theatrical performance to explore the complicated nature of identity informed by Martyn’s own dual Māori/Pākehā lineage.

“This show is for somebody who is ever doubting if they are Māori enough, for rangatahi who are curious to know more about their whakapapa but don’t know where to start.” – Isaac Martyn
