Ko te Black Box Theatre (i mōhiotia i mua ko te Concert Chamber), kua tapaina ki Te Haumako, e kōrero ana mō te haumako o te māra kūmara e tū nei tēnei whare, me te haumako hoki o ngā whakaaturanga ka kitea ki te atamira.

The Black Box Theatre (previously known as the Concert Chamber) will be called Te Haumako, representing the fertile mara kumara ground the building is built on, as well the richness in the performances to be seen on its stage.
