Loud. Brash. Youthful.

Defiant dance, big bold beats and a story of love. The Beautiful Ones created by Hone Kouka, features live vocals and a return to acting by Ria Hall. Projected imagery, live music, beats, fierce dance and late-night talk collide to produce an electrifying underground experience with an urban Pacific flavour.

The Beautiful Ones invites the audience onto the large scale set with open dance floor, and into the dynamic and heady world of Hana and Ihia. Will the promise the young lovers made to each other withstand the temptations of the modern world? 

poetic, lyrical and highly original…
The Dominion Post
