What do you do when you don't want to be Maori or gay, or Asian looking?

You turn it into a cabaret of course!

From the sheep farms of rural NZ to Sydney, Melbourne and on to Darwin, singer/actor/comedian Shalom Kaa takes you on musical, comical and poignant trip through artistic, cultural and sexual identity. Will make you want to laugh, cry & sing.

"Growing up in the '80s, I was Maori but looked Asian, had the most Jewish name ever, I was clearly gay, my family were Jehovah's Witnesses and my Dad loved telling tall stories.

Life felt far from normal - I was a plastic Maori. But my parents were also musicians; music would be my saving grace" Shalom Kaa.

Sold-out 2019 Darwin Festival Recipient - Award for People's Choice Winner -Best Producer. You will sing, laugh & may even do a war dance.       Kia Ora.

Purple Plastic Maori is part of the Darwin Fringe Showcase in Adelaide Fringe 2021
