to showcase Māori talent
An award-winning play is set to premiere at a renovated theatre designed to showcase Māori talent.
Te Pou Theatre, located at the Corban Estate Arts Centre in west Auckland, reopens its doors on March 3 after a $3 million refurbishment.
Hemo is Home, the runner-up at the New Zealand Adam Playwriting Awards in 2022, will be the first production staged at the new-look theatre and its biggest show yet.
The play was written by actor Tainui Tukiwaho and his five tamariki during the Covid-19 lockdown in 2021. Tukiwaho used creativity as a way to keep his tamariki occupied during the pandemic.
