What do you do when you don't want to be Maori or gay, or Asian looking?
You turn it into a cabaret of course!

"Growing up in the '80s, I was Maori but looked Asian, had the most Jewish name ever, I was clearly gay, my family were Jehovah's Witnesses and my Dad loved telling tall stories.
Life felt far from normal - I was a plastic Maori. But my parents were also musicians; music would be my saving grace" Shalom Kaa.

Sold-out 2019 Darwin Festival Recipient - Award for People's Choice Winner -Best Producer. You will sing, laugh & may even do a war dance. Kia Ora.
