Created on Easter Island, this show comes from stone. Stone has a tale to tell, a tale that reaches to the stars and has a place on Earth. Discover a cosmic story carved out through myth, imaginings, song and physicality. Rapanui - The Song of Stone is a one-person show. It has been created on Rapa Nui (Easter Island, Chile) with a dawn visit to Rapanui (Shag Rock, Christchurch) by intrepid theatre creator, Lisa Allan. These two sites have connections to the Waitaha people of New Zealand and parts of their little-known story are woven into this show. Lisa has been creating original theatre since 2002 with companies such as The Loopen Experiment (Christchurch), Blackbird Theatre (Christchurch) and Body in Space (Nelson). She is also a healer and remembers lives beyond this one. This story brings to light a piece of New Zealand history and connects us to our star ancestors. 'Trust in the great unfolding,' the stone said. With these words in their hearts, the Lyrans abandoned their planet. Rapanui, the great sternpost, is guiding us home.
