PURPLE PLASTIC MAORI
The Garage International
Written & Directed By: Shalom Kaa
Returning to Adelaide Fringe 2021.
What do you do when you don't want to be Maori or gay, or Asian looking? You turn it into a cabaret of course!
From the sheep farms of rural NZ to Sydney, Melbourne and on to Darwin, singer/actor/comedian Shalom Kaa takes you on musical, comical and poignant trip through artistic, cultural and sexual identity. Will make you want to laugh, cry & sing.
"Growing up in the '80s, I was Maori but looked Asian, had the most Jewish name ever, I was clearly gay, my family were Jehovah's Witnesses and my Dad loved telling tall stories. Life felt far from normal - I was a plastic Maori. But my parents were also musicians; music would be my saving grace" Shalom Kaa.
