WHAT IS TOUR-MAKERS AND HOW DOES IT CONNECT TO PANNZ?
PANNZ was funded by Creative New Zealand in 2015 to run the national touring agency, Tour-Makers. Tour-Makers supports the touring of professional Aotearoa/New Zealand theatre, music and dance, and is a key initiative towards a sustainable touring network in Aotearoa/New Zealand. Tour-Makers’ purpose is to deliver high-quality work, with more than three people on stage, to medium-large scale professional performing arts venues throughout the country.
Each August, expressions of interest open for touring the following year. Applications are considered for suitability (marketing collateral, quality, scale and financial viability) and then a shortlist is taken to presenters to consider demand.
The 2022 Tour-Makers seasons featured A Boy Called Piano (The Conch) and Thoroughly Modern Maūi (Metro Māori Productions), touring to 12 centres throughout Aotearoa.
