BOLD THEATRE, FRESH DANCE, MANA MĀORI, MANA PASIFIKA. KIA MAU!
New Zealand’s only contemporary indigenous theatre and dance event Kia Mau Festival returns to Wellington from Friday 2 – Saturday 24 June, in venues across the region from Porirua City to Wellington City to Upper Hutt City.
In its third year, Kia Mau Festival is a heart-warming cultural celebration, led by Wellington’s own Māori and Pasifika theatre and dance companies. Kia Mau Festival is a unique and innovative opportunity for whānau and communities across the Wellington region to engage with today’s tangata whenua and First Nations artists, from across the globe.
A few highlights from our amazing 16 event line-up includes: TIKI TAANE MAHUTA by Taki Rua, THE MĀORI SIDESTEPS by Tikapa Productions, MANAIA by Atamira Dance Company, and FIRE IN THE WATER, FIRE IN THE SKY by Tawata Productions. For more information: https://kiamaufestival.org/
