Kaupapa | About

A new dramatic work in development by Tyler Wilson-Kokiri.

“Stability will save you from a tough life. Not wrestling.”

The words that have split Mātī into two since they were first spoken to him from his mother. He lives a double life. The life of a business-stock broker-estate guy who writes pay cheque thingys, and a Professional Wrestler, in his mind and in his eyes.


He encounters an event that merges the two lives with his past and his present. Will it dictate his future?



Tyler Wilson-Kokiri (Ngāti Porou) comes to us fresh from the international indigenous theatre collaboration Hide The Dog which has toured major Australian Festivals in 2022-2023. Tyler  graduated from Toi Whakaari in 2016. Has worked with a variety of companies and shows including, Astroman with Auckland Theatre Company & Te Rēhia Theatre Company,  Racists Anonymous, Ruia Te Kakano & Whytangi with Te Pou Theatre, a rap musical called I Ain’t Mad At Cha by WAITĪ productions, Timberrr…! At Circa Theatre & Centrepoint Theatre. His screen credits include Not Even, Shortland Street and Belief: The Possession Of Janet Moses. You may also recognize his face and voice from a myriad of commercials including the latest Speights ode to friendship. Tyler is KŌKIRI also a wrestler from the Hughes Academy of professional wrestling.



Flake blood and references to violence and suicide.
