Experience a vibrant night of powerful haka theatre and captivating performances by talented rangatahi from across Tāmaki Makaurau.
Students from six different kura kaupapa Māori and high schools will unleash their powerful, creative expression on the Kiri Te Kanawa stage, as they break into the world of performing arts with their own original haka theatre performance pieces.
Created by Hawaiki TŪ in partnership with Auckland Live, Autaia celebrates the richness, diversity, and importance of Ngā Toi Māori (Māori performing arts). Don’t miss this opportunity to support our rangatahi, the emerging generation of Māori performers and artists, as they share their stories through haka theatre.
Haere mai ki tētahi pō whakahirahira ki te rongo i te ihi o te haka tapere, ki te mātakitaki i te tū a te rangatahi nō ngā tōpito o Tāmaki Makaurau.
Ko ngā tauira o ngā kura kaupapa Māori me ngā kura tuarua e whitu, ka whakaatu i te ihi me te wairua auaha ki runga i te papa tūwaewae o Kiri Te Kanawa. Ka kuhu atu rātou ki roto i te ao toi whakaari me ā rātou mahi haka tapere.
I whakatūhia e Auckland Live me Hawaiki TŪ a Autaia ki te whakanui i te matū, te kanorau, me te hira o te Toi Māori. Tautoko mai i te rangatahi, te reanga o ngā kaitoi me ngā ringatoi hou, i a rātou e whakaatu ana i te haka tapere
