Emerging Rangatira at Te Pou Theatre 2021

What even is Digital Theatre/Whakaari Matihiko?


As ingenious as creatives are, moving ‘theatre’ from the ‘theatre’ has been a challenging undertaking -

and we reckon it's time to join together, as our tūpuna before us did with any new undertaking,

to wānanga and find solutions as a collective - Nāku te rourou, nāu te rourou, ka ora ai te iwi.


We invite all Rangatahi Māori artists to journey together through a three-part wānanga series, 

where we will navigate Whakaari Matihiko//Digital Theatre collectively.  


The wānanga will be held for three hours on three consecutive Saturdays,

coursing through the stages of growth - Te Kore, Te Pō, Te Whaiao -

to bring forth new possibilities of online creativity and connection for our community.



Te Kore

Saturday 13 November 2021

10am - 1pm

This space is necessary for new beginnings - connecting together through whakawhanaungatanga and sharing experiences, hopes and questions.


Te Pō

Saturday 20 November 2021

10am - 1pm

In this phase, we introduce a surprise guest speaker to share some beautiful insight - engaging in reflection and new possibilities


Te Whaiao

Saturday 27 November 2021

10am - 1pm

Finally, we endeavour to give shape and meaning to the ideas that spring forth from the wānanga.

We want to support artists by helping to bring the fruits of the wānanga from Te Whaiao, into Te Ao Marama
