2016

We're excited to welcome you to LEGACY PROJECT 3, our third year of continued development and exploration of stories created by, and for, our queer Kiwi community.

As important as these showcase performances are for these new works, it's still only a small part of what we want to achieve with the project. By providing the space, resources and energy for these queer storytellers to discover their own theatrical voices, we can build a community of emerging artists to challenge and change the existing queer narrative. That’s the real worth of LEGACY PROJECT.
