Te Whanganui-a-Tara | Wellington

Presented by: South Arts Collective in association with Believable Arts Management.

We, The Outsiders is an original documentary theatre piece created and inspired by real life stories of migrant workers living in New Zealand. A captivating and thought-provoking theatrical experience that sheds light on the diverse challenges migrants face in New Zealand. From unspoken issues of trying to fit in and learning new languages, to adapting to a whole new culture entirely.


This production explores themes of identity, belonging and integration through a collection of interviews, testimonies and dramatised retellings. A powerful blend of storytelling, original music and multimedia elements. We, The Outsiders aims to spark in-depth conversations about who migrates to Aotearoa and why. Raw, frustrating, and hilarious – much like life itself – this show is not one to miss.


We, The Outsiders is the latest piece from director Romina Meneses, presented by South Arts Collective in association with Believable Arts Management. Our production premiered at BATS Theatre in January 2024 as part of the Victoria University of Wellington's Master of Fine Arts Six Degrees Festival.


Romina Meneses founded South Arts Collective in 2020 to promote performing arts for fringe communities. Now based in Pōneke, she has worked across devised and applied theatre for the last six years. Her focus is empowering non-professional performers from different communities and backgrounds through theatrical practice.


Tom Smith and Jimmy Williamson founded Believable Arts Management in 2023 to uplift other creatives needing production assistance. They share a passion for making subversive and unexpected theatre that challenges the audience's preconceptions.
