We are committed to artist development as part of our annual programme of performance.

Our work includes the dance theatre farce Ngā Rorirori, the award winning short film fire in the water, fire in the sky, the annual Indigenous playwrights festival Breaking Ground and Open Looks the short film currently in post-production.
