To all friends and whanau of our dear company. Just to let you know the very sad news that our long-serving Assistant Artistic Director, Darryl Low, who retired earlier this year due to illness, has finally found peace. He passed away in the early hours of Saturday morning on the 11th of September. He had battled his illness for a number of years and it had increasingly got worse this year. Ata noho rangimarie, my friend. - Cameron Mattox.

Hagley was such an incredible hands on experience. The opportunity to try my hand at so many aspects of performance art was invaluable to me finding my path forward and building my courage.
