TANGATA: to be human

We are an award winning contemporary circus company with the human spirit at our core. Movement is our means of communication. We strive to build our shows around the idea that everyone understands what it means to be a human being. Through the tensions, risks and resolutions that play out on our stage, our audiences can see themselves reflected and championed in our performers. In an increasingly divided world, we strive to create experiences which remind us that we are all human.

Born from the melting pot of culture in New Zealand's cultural capital in 2018, we blend the art forms of circus, theatre, music and dance in our performances. Working with some of the country's most exciting performers, we aim to reinforce contemporary circus as a valuable part of New Zealand's creative landscape.
