Breaking Ground

13-19 June | Te Auaha, Wellington

The 12th season of our new writing festival, Breaking Ground returns to Wellington City in 2021.

Breaking Ground is a festival of ideas, crafted into life by playwrights from across Aotearoa. This year, our festival will be imagining new stories for the stage.

In 2021, the festival will host five playwrights who will be developing five new stageplays.

The 12th season of our new writing festival, Breaking Ground returns to Wellington City in 2021. After our first online season in 2020, in response in Covid-19, Te Whanganui-a-tara will again be home to Māori & Pasifika writers of theatre.
