A Taki Rua production
Saturday 21 July 2018
Pātaka Art + Museum, Performing Arts Studio
10.30am 12.30pm performances
Taki Rua are holding two free performances of our te reo Māori play Hine Kihāwai at Pātaka on July 21. The first performance starts at 10:30am, the second at 12:30pm.
Hine Kihāwai may have left the world of the living, but she lives on in the memories of her children Tama and Te Aniwa.
Against all odds, her tamariki fight to hold on to her teachings, her wisdom, her songs – everything they knew and loved about her. Only through retaining all that she gave them can they truly face the challenges of their turbulent world.
The show is entirely in te reo Māori, but uses gestures and movement so that even non-speakers can follow along.
The 2018 Te Reo Māori Season is a retelling of the 2003 children’s play Āwhina. Written by the highly regarded composer, teacher and Māori leader Hone Hurihanganui, Hine Kihāwai has been redeveloped for a new generation of tamariki.
The show runs for roughly 45 minutes.
Suitable for all ages.
