Experience a vibrant night full of powerful haka theatre and captivating performances by talented rangatahi (young poeple) from across Tāmaki Makaurau.

Students from eight different kura kaupapa Māori and high schools will unleash their powerful, creative expression on the Kiri Te Kanawa stage, as they break into the world of performing arts with their own original haka theatre performance pieces.   

Created by Auckland Live in partnership with Hawaiki TŪ, Autaia celebrates the richness, diversity, and importance of Toi Māori. Don’t miss this opportunity to support our rangatahi, the emerging generation of Māori performers and artists, as they share their stories through haka theatre. 

Haere mai ki tētahi pō whakahirahira ki te rongo i te ihi o te haka tapere, ki te mātakitaki i te tū a te rangatahi nō ngā tōpito o Tāmaki Makaurau.

Ko ngā tauira o ngā kura kaupapa Māori me ngā kura tuarua e waru, ka whakaatu i te ihi me te wairua auaha ki runga i te papa tūwaewae o Kiri Te Kanawa. Ka kuhu atu rātou ki roto i te ao toi whakaari me ā rātou mahi haka tapere.

I whakatūhia e Auckland Live me Hawaiki TŪ a Autaia ki te whakanui i te matū, te kanorau, me te hira o te Toi Māori. Tautoko mai i te rangatahi, te reanga o ngā kaitoi me ngā ringatoi hou, i a rātou e whakaatu ana i te haka tapere.

$2 per hour to a max of $12 on weekends and a $12 flat rate for weekday evenings at The Civic car park. Find out more
