A bilingual love-at-first-zoom success story from NZ’s leading interracial dating agency… COLOUR – We Don’t See It!

Karen Karena is committed to helping you to find your perfect “other” through her award-winning agency of love: COLOUR – We Don’t See it!

FOUND IN TRANSLATION is her latest success story where despite a few hurdles, Hinepūkohurangi and Adrian found love at first Zoom (or Zui as they say in te reo Māori) with the aid of one of our professional Translators-of-the-heart.

We guarantee you too will be inspired to find your own “other” after witnessing their glorious union.

Found In Translation is available 16th July 2020 and is a pay-for-view inspiration story.

Te Pou and Te Rēhia Theatre Company 

Commissioned by Circa Theatre, Te Pou and Te Rēhia Theatre Company come together to present a new 10 minute theatre piece written and directed by Tainui Tukiwaho. This tongue in cheek ten minute work is designed for online viewing and gives the audience a “real life” zoom date that has been arranged by ‘Karen Karena’, the proud proprietor of COLOUR – We Don’t See It, which is NZ’s leading interracial dating agency.

Tainui created this work as a satirical commentary on the perils of translation, the danger of a little knowledge and the othering of Māori and those considered “diverse” in our society.

Our cast includes Acushla-Tara Kupe, Tyler Wilson Kōkiri and Tuakoi Ohia

Te Rēhia Theatre is the company in residence at Te Pou Theatre and is pleased to be working with Circa Theatre after successful seasons in the venue including SolOTHELLO (2017) and Larger Than Life (2018).
