Wellington Ballroom is bringing ARAWHATA to Kia Mau Festival 2023.
ARAWHATA is a one-of-a-kind show capturing the essence and lived experiences of queer, indigenous people of colour through the art forms of underground Ballroom and the practices of the cultures which flow through our blood.
We welcome you into a sacred realm of stories that speak to our lived experiences as they meet at crossroads.
We invite you to witness, hear and hold these intimate tales with love and care – perhaps even seeing your own story within ours.
