Haka Day Out presents the dense and mesmerising native Mãori performing art (kapa haka), through a medley of tribal footwork, weaponry dancing, native Poi dancing, and powerful chanting and singin all woven together with contemporary movement.

Hairs on the back of your neck will be standing as the famous New Zealand love song Pokarekare Ana, and fierce Haka are performed. Haka Day Out is not only for Rugby World Cup and Haka fans, but dance and theatregoers alike, and anyone wishing to be spellbound by New Zealand’s magical culture presented in true top class style.

Kapa haka is the the collective performing arts of indigenous Maori people of New Zealand, a showcase of their heritage and cultural identity through song and dance. A Kapa haka performance involves choral singing, dance and movements associated in the hand-to-hand combat.

The Haka is a traditional ancestral war cry, dance or challenge from the Maori people. It is a posture dance performed by a group, with vigorous movements and stamping of the feet with rhythmically shouted accompaniment.
