The last New Zealand war took place in Auckland in 1979. It lasted three minutes.
There’s a long, rich history of Māori resistance in New Zealand but, for every Bastion Point or Ihumātao that makes headlines, other incidents quickly fade into the mists of history.
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.
Violence erupted that sent ripples through the nation and changed race relations in New Zealand forever.
Crafted by film-maker and theatre director Katie Wolfe (Rendered, Anahera, Waru), The Haka Party Incident combines documentary and stagecraft to thrilling effect. Provocative, resonant and unforgettable, The Haka Party Incident is a not-to-be-missed theatre event.
The Haka Party Incident was commissioned and developed by ATC Literary.
