In Transit is a New Zealand/African play that gives voice to the NZ Ngati African communities, many of whom are former refugees. The play is a collection of stories of flight from their homelands and the struggle to find their place in a new country.
It is based on the real-life experiences of Africans living in Aotearoa NZ with a thought provoking theme about intergenerational conflict. The play revolves around eight different characters of various backgrounds. The presentational style draws largely from African and Pacific theatre and performing arts traditions fusing the different art forms and theatrical concepts into a unique platform.
