Kia Mau Festival’s digital theatre, Moana Nui, is a curated online experience of live performance from Kia Mau Festival and from tangata whenua, tangata moana and Indigenous artists throughout the world.
From full-length theatre and dance shows filmed in season at Kia Mau; to the raw and intimate final rehearsal room performances as artists prepare for their Opening Night; to the new audio drama from a local theatre company in Aotearoa, Moana Nui is proud to collaborate with creative storytellers presenting new work from throughout the Indigenous world.
Nau mai, haramai ki te Moana Nui!
We are proud to collaborate with creative storytellers presenting new work from throughout the Indigenous world including Article 11, Moogahlin Performing Arts, Kaha:wi Dance Theatre, Atamira Dance Company, Bianca Hyslop & Rowan Pierce, Teremoana Rapley, The Māori Sidesteps, Mahi Mahi Productions and Tawata Productions.
As Indigenous peoples, Māori and Pasifika are global by nature. Moana Nui has the ability to connect us. Our stories are amplified across our digital ocean – reaching across Aotearoa but also throughout Te Moana-nui-a-Kiwa and the world.
