The core principle of the HaBYT company is whanaungatanga - the treasuring of connection, community and trust. Throughout the year, members of the HaBYT Company work closely together to develop their craft as actors and performance, with a key focus on voice, movement and character work. Company members work towards a staged theatre work which is performed later in the year.
Our whanau is important to us, and trips away are organised occasionally and when possible to help bonding and friendships flourish. Additionally, the Company tours nationally and internationally every second year.
