The Christchurch Tour of MUNTED....

When the devastating earthquake struck on February 22nd in Christchurch we were all in different places. Victoria, our Christchurch native was studying theatre over in Paris. She began to jot down thoughts in the aftermath, while waiting to hear from her family. Soon after, we both decided the best way we could process the event and reach out was through our craft. The result is MUNTED: a ground breaking documentary theatre piece.

After successfully premiering MUNTED at BATS Theatre, Wellington in January of this year Bare Hunt Collective is set to tour to the city we wrote MUNTED for… Christchurch, before Otago in September and Auckland in December.

MUNTED is edited together from interviews with reporters and the community. Three actresses present 15 peoples stories on stage within an hour long show. Their words are performed 100% verbatim from interviews, and we meet everyone from a 4 year old boy to a Grocer to a Cameraman covering the quake on TV. Stories of loss, peppered with humour and perspective on one of “our worst national tragedies” are told in direct speech. MUNTED finds laughter amongst grief and a strengthened community in the heart of the shaken city.

This is what TVNZ Journalist Matt Mclean had to say about MUNTED: “I truly believe MUNTED is a show as many New Zealanders as possible should see. This earthquake didn’t just affect the people of Christchurch…it affected us all. We all felt their grief, their stories. This play is phenomenal, and Bare Hunt’s almost sold-out Wellington season proves this is something we want to see” .

By donating money, you will be supporting local stories from an emerging theatre company who are flying to Christchurch from Wellington and Otago to stage MUNTED.

Who are the people you are supporting?

Bare Hunt Collective was co founded by Victoria Abbott and Jackie Shaw in 2010, both graduates of the Otago University Theatre department, where they studied Documentary Theatre together. Documentary theatre, and more specifically Verbatim dialogue connects with its audience in a unique way, the stories come from the community and are represented back for the community. Bare Hunt Collective uses this form to elevate NZ stories and storytellers to a theatrical level, while retaining the honest, down to earth delivery we gathered them in. Our aim is to activate our audiences by showing our world through a multitude of different eyes and viewpoints. It’s our hope that the work we do brings your stories and perspectives into the spoken.
