FILM, DANCE AND LIVE STAGE THEATRE
“Want a future that’ll make your family proud? What about success and happiness? You’ll find all this and more at Camp Mana.”
A new door opens for Hemi and Anna as they’re accepted into the prestigious ‘Camp Mana,’ a program designed to prepare promising school leavers to succeed in the ‘real’ world. The pair come from a low socio-economic area and are given the opportunity to defy the odds. But there’s always a catch – how much will they have to give up to succeed?
“Code-Switch” is a collaborative live cinema experience combining film, dance and live stage theatre that explores what happens to young people when dreams, values, and social contexts clash. Follow the illusions and disillusionment of two students whose lives are a little bit like all of ours: Hemi, the artistic and naive blank slate, and Anna, the ambitious and determined over-achiever. From choosing between passion and financial stability, to juggling the pressures of family and culture, the decisions they make will have consequences – whether they like it or not.
Proudly supported by Auckland Council Creative Communities, Photogear and Aorere College Foundation.
