HBAF 2021 - The Haka Party Incident

109 Hastings St S, Hastings

The Haka Party Incident
BY KATIE WOLFE
An Auckland Theatre Company production

The last New Zealand war took place in Auckland in 1979. It lasted three minutes. The Haka Party Incident resurrects the eventful day when a group of University of Auckland engineering students rehearsing their annual tradition of a mock haka are confronted by the activist group, He Taua. The incident sent ripples through the nation and changed race relations in New Zealand forever. Crafted by film-maker and theatre director Katie Wolfe (The Mooncake and the Kumara, Waru, He Māngai Wāhine, Artefact), The Haka Party Incident is verbatim theatre that innovatively combines documentary and kapa haka to thrilling effect. Provocative, resonant and unforgettable. A not-to-be-missed landmark theatre event.
