The NZSL interpreted performance for Auckland Theatre Company's The Haka Party Incident will be held on Saturday 9 October, 2pm at ASB Waterfront Theatre, Auckland.

About The Haka Party Incident:

The last New Zealand war took place in Auckland in 1979. It lasted three minutes.
Award-winning The Haka Party Incident returns after a sold-out premiere season.

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 filmmaker 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.
