For many years, The Court Theatre has worked to support Māori and Pasifika writers, performers, directors and producers within the theatre community in Ōtautahi.
The theatre aimed to engage with Māori and Pasifika in their communities, schools and on their marae through performing arts.
The Court Theatre Māori and Pasifika Producer, Vanessa Gray, said there was high demand for a reflection of these communities.
All shows featured in The Court Theatre's latest initiative Ē Toru sold out, indicating public support for stories and perspectives of Māori and Pasifika culture.
The performances included 'Rīpeka,' written by Tania Gilchrist, 'Au Ko Tuvalu' written by 'Tavita Nielson-Mamea' and 'Palu' written by YINOT.
