Told with aroha and striking originality, The Contours of Heaven combines the forms of verbatim theatre, live vocal harmonies and movement, to tell the real stories of six young people from Te Matau a Māui, The Hawkes Bay.

Expect to ride the wave of these stories of love and loss, hopes and fears across fifty minutes.

The Contours of Heaven is one woman tour-de-force performed by Ana Chaya Scotney (The Breaker Upperers) bringing forward six diverse voices to pose the question:

What does it take to determine who you could be?

Without doubt this was one of the best performances I have ever seen...I would urge anyone to go and see it.
