New Zealand artists continue to thrill at the largest arts showcase in the world.  As the Edinburgh Fringe rounded out its first fortnight, Lemi Ponifasio/MAU’s dramatic I AM was staged at the Edinburgh Playhouse and Michael Houston performed at the Queen’s Hall for the Edinburgh International Festival.

Here are some of the highlights from the last week:

  • In this exclusive video for the Guardian, New Zealand pianist Michael Houstoun introduces Ravel's Le tombeau de Couperin – his piano suite dedicated to friends who were killed in the first world war. Houstoun performs the 5th movement from the suite, a minuet, dedicated to Jean Dreyfus.
  • Matt Trueman's article in the Financial Times tackles the sensitive topic of colonialism and features an interview with On the Upside Down of the World's playwright, Arthur Meek.
