Kia Mau festival celebrates Maori and Pasifika theatre and dance

by Noted / 09 June, 2017
New Zealand’s only contemporary indigenous theatre and dance festival has returned to the capital.

Kia Mau, now in its third year, celebrates Maori and Pasifika performing arts in venues all around the Wellington region. 

The festival was created in 2015 to challenge the idea of what Māori, Pasifika and indigenous theatre and dance is and to enrich the Māori and Pasifika creative economy in the Wellington region.

This year's festival will have performances from more than 130 artists until June 24.
