For one night only Autaia haka theatre returns to the Kiri Te Kanawa Theatre stage on Friday 9 June as tauira from across Tāmaki Makaurau perform in Autaia 2023.

Experience a vibrant night of powerful haka theatre and captivating performances by talented rangatahi from across Tāmaki Makaurau. 

Students from six 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 Hawaiki TŪ in partnership with Auckland Live, Autaia celebrates the richness, diversity, and importance of Ngā Toi Māori (Māori Arts). A first of its kind, it showcases the emerging generation of Māori performers and artists, as they share their stories through haka theatre.

Featuring 400 tauira from six schools, Autaia is the merging of modern day theatre and traditional Māori performing arts. Each school will perform a captivating 15-minute set featuring talented rangatahi sharing their life experiences through vibrant, powerful performances. This will be a great chance to experience a glimpse into the world of haka.

$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
