Hot and Cold: Lynda Chanwai Earle talks to Miria George

The 2019 Creative New Zealand/Victoria University Writer in Residence Lynda Chanwai-Earle is a ground-breaking poet and playwright, whose work HEAT was the first-ever play to be powered by solar and wind power.

This year, she is working on the second and third plays in her ‘Antarctic Trilogy’, and co-writing a television drama drawing on the real-life murder of a Chinese student in Auckland that was also the basis for her play Man in a Suitcase.

Lynda is a well-known public broadcaster with RNZ, and has toured in a Māori theatre company visiting schools and prisons.

She explores her interlocking creative lives with producer/playwright Miria George.
