Presented by Tauranga Arts Festival
The last New Zealand war took place in Auckland in 1979. It lasted three minutes.
The Haka Party Incident resurrects the eventful day when a group of University of Auckland engineering students rehearsing their annual tradition of a mock haka are confronted by the activist group, He Taua.
The incident sent ripples through the nation and changed race relations in New Zealand forever.
Award-winning The Haka Party Incident, returns after a sold-out premiere season.
Crafted by film-maker and theatre director Katie Wolfe (The Mooncake and the Kumara, Waru, He Mangai Wahine, Artefact), The Haka Party Incident is verbatim theatre that innovatively combines documentary and kapa haka to thrilling effect.
Provocative, resonant and unforgettable. A not-to-be-missed landmark theatre event.
A korero will be held post show for those wanting to attend.
