Anthonie Tonnon’s heralded music tour of our great passenger railways, public transport routes and community venues returns to Tāmaki Makaurau, for a journey by tram in Western Springs.
Mixing song, narrative, personal memoir, historical research, and a poetic but tangible public transport journey, Rail Land is songwriter and performer Anthonie Tonnon’s latest theatrical show, after his much-loved A Synthesized Universe (AAF2019) concert for planetariums.
Following a journey on a real working tram, once used in our cities, you’ll join Tonnon at the original Waitakere Station at MOTAT for a show woven with synthesizer soundscapes and storytelling.
