Tawata Productions is a creative company based in Wellington, Aotearoa New Zealand.

Specialising in the rigorous development and presentation of new theatre and screen production, Tawata blurs the lines between text, movement and image presenting a dynamic performance experience from Aotearoa to the world beyond. We present an annual programme of stage, sound & screen productions – as well as Breaking Ground, an international Indigenous playwriting festival.

Our digital space shares creative kōrero from across the Tawata Productions’ Collaborators from within Aotearoa New Zealand & throughout the globe. Collaborations include the new writing project Ngā Whakaaro Huritāo scribed by directors, actors, composers, production managers, designers, festival directors who have worked with our company across nearly two decades. The wāhine Māori & va’ine Pasifika writers’ collective Maranga Mai have crafted two audio drama series.

Nau mai, whakatata mai ki te ao toi a Tawata.
