Presented by Wahanui Productions

Tangihanga, performed by Kristyl Neho, is a 60-minute drama comedy centered around Jess, a loving daughter, whose father Karanipa passes away, leading his whanau and friends to travel near and far to gather at the Marae to mourn his loss. Neho masterfully embodies over 30 characters.

As the tangi progresses, tensions rise, family dynamics unravel, and secrets are exposed, all while Jess and the whanau grapple with their grief and differences.

Join us on an emotional rollercoaster as we explore the intricacies of whanau relationships, identity, cultural traditions, and the importance of family and community in times of grief and loss.
