Te Pou Theatre presents Whakaari Matihiko, a series of FREE technical workshops to support Māori creatives who are interested in making digital theatre.

 

The series consists of three components, all aimed for entry-level participants:

 

Awheawhe hopuata is a foundational video workshop using a mirrorless camera. 

Awheawhe hopurama focuses on lighting fundamentals for video.

Awheawhe hopuoro is an introduction to sound recording for video.

 

We aim to equip Māori creatives with basic digital skills to then diversify theatre to include digital and live hybrid performing arts experiences. Māori creatives are invited to register on our website. Workshops will be conducted by an experienced photographer and video maker, Ralph Brown, and will be limited to ensure everyone will have a chance to use the equipment. Registrations will be made on a first in, first serve basis.

 

Kua tae te wā ki a koe hei piki taumata, nō reira, nau mai, haere mai.
