Circa Theatre

Indigenous. Dance. Theatre. Farce.

Celebrated artist Hone Kouka (Ngāti Porou, Rongowhakaata, Ngāti Raukawa) brings to the stage his new work – Māori. Dance. Theatre. Farce. 'Ngā Rorirori' pushes the boundaries of live performance as we know it. A rural marae has hit the jackpot – if they pass one final hurdle, that is. The haukāinga must convince the Government’s Chief Executive of the Department of ‘Whenua, Whakapapa and Whatever’ that they are the true descendants of their eponymous ancestor. If they are successful at doing so, the vast coastline in their rohe reverts to their ownership, garnering millions of dollars… in back rent alone.

A tale of greed and aroha, told through choreography and clowning, 'Ngā Rorirori' is the new work from the writer-director Hone Kouka, of landmark theatre productions Waiora, The Prophet and Bless The Child.

‘a story that unfolds with beautiful subtlety. It’s thrilling.’ — Metro Magazine

‘they are all beautifully balanced in this portrait that Hone Kouka conceived’ — The Dominion Post
