23 September - 3 October 2021
Over the month of Mahuru (September) we invite you Whakarongo mai, Mātakitaki Mai, Huihui mai as we bring you new Māori theatre experiences from our whare to yours.
Kōanga is heralded by the blossoming of the kōwhai and the call of the pīpīwharauroa as it returns to our shores. This is traditionally a time of joining together and combining efforts to prepare the maara for planting. We see this festival as a chance to prepare the fertile ground of our Auckland Māori stories and storytellers, developing potential for our stories to flourish.
Our Kōanga 2021 Programme will be released later in the year.
