SHERILEE KAHUI

Ko Taranaki te mounga

Ko Pungaereere te awa

Ko Kurahaupō te waka

Ko Taranaki te iwi

Ko Te Pōtaka te marae

Ko Ngāti Haupoto te hapū

Ko Sherilee Kahui tōku ingoa

Sherilee is a graduate of Victoria University of Wellington and Toi Whakaari: New Zealand Drama School. She has lived and made theatre in Japan, Australia and New Zealand. After becoming a mum to her first son, Darby, Sherilee toured her solo show, (A Smidge of) Pidge both around Aotearoa and to the 2017 Melbourne Fringe Festival. She has served as a trustee of Ngā Whakarākei o Whātaitai (Wellington Theatre Awards) and as a board member for BATS Theatre.

Sherilee credits Maranga Mai and Tawata Productions with supporting her to find her own indigenous voice as a writer. After her second year with Maranga Mai (and while she was hapū with her second son, Jethro), Sherilee was invited to join Breaking Ground where she developed her new work Mokomoko, which was performed in development at BATS Theatre in 2022.
