Created by Te Pou Theatre in association with Te Rēhia Theatre. Commissioned by Circa Theatre with support from TACT.

A bilingual love-at-first-zoom success story from NZ’s leading interracial dating agency… COLOUR – We Don’t See It! 


Karen Karena is committed to helping you to find your perfect “other” through her award-winning agency of love: COLOUR – We Don’t See it! FOUND IN TRANSLATION is her latest success story where despite a few hurdles, Hinepūkohurangi and Adrian found love at first Zoom (or Zui as they say in te reo Māori) with the aid of one of our professional Translators-of-the-heart.

We guarantee you too will be inspired to find your own “other” after witnessing their glorious union.


This is a pay-for-view inspiration story available from 9 July 2020.

Te Rēhia Theatre is the company in residence at Te Pou Theatre and is pleased to be working with Circa Theatre after successful seasons in the venue including SolOTHELLO (2017) and Larger Than Life (2018).  This tongue in cheek ten minute work is designed for online viewing and gives the audience a “real life” zoom date that has been arranged by ‘Karen Karena’, the proud proprietor of COLOUR – We Don’t See It, which is NZ’s leading interracial dating agency.

Tainui created this work as a satirical commentary on the perils of translation, the danger of a little knowledge and the othering of Māori and those considered “diverse” in our society.

Our cast includes Acushla-Tara Kupe, Mataara Stokes, Tyler Wilson Kōkiri and Tuakoi Ohia.
