Oamaru residents can expect to be moved by Tim Finn’s immersive show, White Cloud, at the Oamaru Opera House on October 18.
Performed by Finn, White Cloud combines observation, photographs and journals, story and song to deliver a celebration of family, ancestors and what it means to be Pākehā.
The musician said a lot of people in Oamaru would be able to relate to the show, which tells the story of growing up Pākehā in New Zealand.
“People have been quite moved by it.”
The show aims to celebrate the identity of growing up Pākehā but it will tell some of the darker stories too and it won’t all be nostalgic, he said.
“There’s a lot of great people that have been here before us.”
The artist said he was really looking forward to performing in Oamaru because it’s a “special place”.
It’s got some great old buildings that have not been destroyed like other towns, Finn said.
“It’s got some history.”
White Cloud, which was written by Tim Finn and Ken Duncum with film by Sue Healey, will be performed at the Oamaru Opera House on October 18 at 8pm.
