About
Taki Rua

KAUPAPA MĀORI THEATRE COMPANY 

Taki Rua Productions is a national, kaupapa Māori performing arts organisation based in Pōneke.We produce, commission and develop theatre works through a distinctively Māori lens, while advocating for the wider industry.

Since 1983, Taki Rua has been an arts industry leader – a creative rule breaker, continually evolving the definition of Māori theatre.
We exist to connect the past and present and ensure Māori voices are heard worldwide.

 

Taki Rua is an incorporated society that is governed by a volunteer board, with an operational team based in our offices – Te Haukāinga – in Taranaki Street.

Our Whānau

The Taki Rua whānau all play an important part in keeping the ahikā of Te Haukāinga burning.
