My Heart Goes Thadak Thadak

Silo Theatre is a leading producer of contemporary theatre in Aotearoa New Zealand.

We curate an annual season of local and international work that champions new forms of storytelling in order to speak directly to the world around us. We work with the most exceptional theatre practitioners from Aotearoa, at every stage of their career, providing the space for them to extend their practice and create their most courageous work. Our focus is on voices that are urgent and are not heard often enough.

In Tāmaki Makaurau, in Aotearoa and sometimes overseas, we provide exceptional experiences for a variety of audiences, with the hope that they walk away from a Silo show a little bit transformed, a little bit uplifted, and with a greater sense of connection to themselves and our collective cultural identity.

We acknowledge Te Tiriti o Waitangi as this nation's founding document, and the rightful place of Māori as tangata whenua in Aotearoa New Zealand. Furthermore, as an organisation that calls Tāmaki Makaurau home, we acknowledge and recognise mana whenua o Ngāti Whātua o Ōrākei.
