This year Bowater Toyota are proud to be joining forces with Creative NZ to bring to the 20th Annual Nelson Arts Festival this acclaimed show by celebrated New Zealand musician Tim Finn.
This unique show has been crafted by Finn with award-winning playwright Ken Duncum and filmmaker Sue Healey. A performance event where the alchemy of observation, photographs and journals, story, and song deliver a potent celebration of family, ancestors and what it means to be Pākehā.
Touching on themes of cultural dislocation, relocation and reconnection, White Cloud is a reflection on the life of Tim's Anglo-Saxon family growing up in New Zealand, missing the UK, being immersed in Māori culture and how that shaped his family.
[Tim Finn’s songs] tell amazing stories and are refreshingly direct in what he has to say and what he asks us to question. Duncum takes family stories and brings them alive, with enough nostalgia to make us all reflect on growing up in a younger more innocent New Zealand but not enough to feel sugar coated. They make for a powerful creative combination.
