Matariki is all about coming together with friends and family for a good time - what better chance to do so than at the newest old school cabaret?
Hot on the heels of three sell-out shows at Auckland Festival 2009, Tama Waipara presents Sir+Plus and The Requirements, in a fresh and exciting approach to the theatre and music of old school cabaret. Fusing musical icons such as Prince Tui Teka, Kid Creole and Burt Bacharach with a touch of funk and groove, Sir Plus is sure to get your toes tapping. The show takes its cue from Sergeant Pepper, with Sir Plus as “the long lost Polynesian cousin”.
Tama Waipara, well- known and respected for his musical collaborations with national and international artists, has taken on a new direction with the creation of Sir+Plus.
“Imagine being left on an island with Prince Tui Teka, Kid Creole and Elvis Presley and you go some way to entering the world of Sir+Plus. Raised on a mixture of 60’s Brit pop, 50’s Motown and fed the falsehood of 80’s New Zealand stereotypes, Sir+Plus is a social avenger. Like Batman, he is a law unto himself, albeit with a slightly dented heart of gold. A balladeer gone bad.”
Sir+Plus and The Requirements are presented as part of Matariki ki Manukau 2009. The evening opens with complimentary Maori hors d'oeuvres and a cash bar.
