Talofa lava, kia orana, malo e lelei - nau mai, haere mai

We are fully committed to the principles of The Treaty of Waitangi; partnership, participation and protection.

Ka tū te tītī tautahi i te ao hurihuri                            The lonely tītī stands in this new world
Mau ki te manawa tītī                                                      Be stout of heart.

Ko te Moemoeā               

We are working to support a strong presence of Māori and Pasifika writers, performers, directors and producers within the theatre community in Ōtautahi. We are interested in finding and supporting the next generation of Māori and Pasifika Theatre makers and celebrating the fantastic portfolio of work that already exists. We want to establish connections with Māori & Pasifika practitioners throughout the region and be a hub for creative collaboration and development.

  • Kia Oho Mauri  - We aim to take action in collaborating and working alongside the Māori & Pasifika theatre sector in order to create Māori & Pasifika works with the intention of offering culturally rich theatre experiences.
  • Whakawhanaungatanga - We aim to engage with Māori & Pasifika in their communities, in their schools and on their marae through performing arts.
