Sometimes a theatre production pops up out of nowhere and becomes a phenomenon.
The Wāhine Works production of Waiora: Te-ū-kai-po (The Homeland) began as a class assessment for students at Whangarei Girls’ High School and grew into a three season smash hit in Whangarei and, when Don Brash came, a national news story.
Now Wāhine Works, in association with Whangarei Girls’ High School, is excited and honoured to bring to Wellington Hone Kouka’s vivid depiction of the urban migration of Māori.
“Waiora is powerful.” – NORTHERN ADVOCATE
