51m Dance, Theatre 2021

Ngā mihi o te wā o Hine Raumati! Welcome to Moana Nui’s Summer Season!

We’re very proudly partnering with artist Scotty Cotter, to share with you, the Return Digital Season of the Kia Mau Festival 2021 hit theatre production, NEKE.

Join us, as we return to the final days of rehearsal, with the cast and crew of NEKE created and directed by award winning artist Scotty Cotter.

A devised physical theatre work that explores the pillars of te ao Māori. NEKE is the search and the celebration of our individual journey as Māori.

Kia tūhononga tātou. To connect us.

NEKE shares the discovery of kaitiakitanga and remembrance; our inner haka and the evolution of mana motuhake.

Join us behind-the-scenes with this magnetic piece of theatre. Told through movement, character, voice and hard-out crack ups!

NEKE is the debut work by award winning Māori theatre, film and television actor Scotty Cotter.
