The Primary Care Exhibition was showcased at the Hocken Library this month focusing on "different areas such as health promotion, disease prevention, disgnosis, treatment, deinstitutionalisation - thinking about hospitals like Seacliff - mental health, community health and Māori health" - Otago Daily Times. One of the key performances was Barrier Ninja devised and performed by our very own Fran Kewene (pictured above - Photos: Peter McIntosh).

Barrier Ninja is a verbatim play based on the testimonies of nine people’s experiences of Hauora. This holistic one-woman show examines the experiences of health – physical, emotional, mental, social and spiritual caring, sharing their different experiences. Barrier Ninja has been performed within the Hauora Māori medical curriculum at the Dunedin School of Medicine, Dunedin and Wellington, University of Otago.
