Waiora by Hone Kouka
Waiora is a captivating play surrounding a Maori family who migrated from the North Island’s east cape to the South Island. The family forges new identities as they strive for success in their new home, but their origins and cultural background cannot be easily forgotten. This critically acclaimed play explores what it means to be home and to belong. Waiora was originally commissioned by the 1996 Wellington International Festival of the Arts and was performed to sold out audiences.
