The beginning of Rupture

We are excited to congratulate the writer-creators and their collaborators for their selection into the inaugural season of Rupture!

Asuka Sylvie with Emma Mortimer, Briar Grace-Smith with Victor Rodger, Coco Solid with Litia Tuiburelevu, Manuha’apai Vaeatangitau & Fuimaono-Tuimafuiva Falesataua Joshua Iosefo ‘Mush’, Dianne Taylor with Robyn Malcolm, Max Currie with Sam Shore, and Tusiata Avia with Karin Williams & Matasila Freshwater.

Over six months, six series writer-creators and their teams are provided resources and support to come together, experiment, go deeper, explore pathways to market - and ultimately take their practice to the next level.

Rupture comprises intensive story labs, ongoing support from local and international practitioners, and development funding for participants’ series projects. Rupture brings together powerful storytellers to shake up and deepen episodic series development in Aotearoa New Zealand. It provides a space for strong writers to push their craft further so that their stories can resonate in profound ways within their audiences.
