    A journey of the mind, through song and story, about New Zealand’s on-and-off again love affair with passenger rail. Equal parts tragedy, comedy, and personal memoir, Rail Land is a theatrical show that weaves the critically acclaimed songs of Anthonie Tonnon with synthesizer soundscapes, and soliloquy like story-telling.

    Along with touches like historical letters to the editor, and meticulous notes on taking Aotearoa’s surviving public railways, Rail Land is a story of human enterprise, sabotage, obsession and hope. The show also features an exhibition of historic NZ Rail Advertising Department posters and schematic maps, blown up to large scale.

    This performance is the last in the season brought to you in association with Arts on Tour New Zealand.
