Delights every one of the senses for those lucky enough to witness it.
Rolling Stone
A work like RECKŌNING is rare. It’s full of heart and respect and musicality and guts and that’s why it’s so impactful.
Simon Abrahams, CEO & Creative Director, Melbourne Fringe
RECKŌNING is a powerful, innovative and compelling work that takes the audience on a deeply engaging journey and showcases the amazing talents both of its creators, Samuel Gaskin and Johnny Hamilton, and of their incredible team of performers and creatives.
John Foreman OAM
The real joy however of RECKŌNING is its original music, blend of different art forms and authentic storytelling.
Broadway World
My praise for this performance exceeds the words that I can truly use to do it justice. It is raw and emotional and so powerful in many ways.
Theatre Travels

A concert version of the theatre show RECKŌNING Te Waiata Paihere Wairua (the sounds of woven souls) including the main cast and special guests performing original music from the show. The concert is a recognition of past injustices, a journey through understanding, and a celebration of indigenous cultures survival, creativity and strength.
