Australian Premiere | New Zealand
Award-winning Maori New Zealand showband and 2018 Adelaide Cabaret Festival audience favourite, Modern Maori Quartet (MMQ) are back to premiere their fabulous new work.
Two Worlds - an original Maori play with songs - is a timely return to the bros' theatrical beginnings with a show full of heart and revelation. With signature style and humour Two Worlds weaves together four stories that unfold the fabric of Maori musical culture, its genealogy and evolution, to explore what it means to be Maori in this day and age.
Two Worlds is a truly magical performance – we cannot recommend it enough. ★★★★★ The Wee Review
A combustible mix of passionate history, personal and tribal ★★★★ The Scotsman
