Te Reo Maori Season, Tairua Theatre

0
135

In 2011 we celebrate 16 years of touring Maori language theatre to communities nationwide.

Taki Rua continues to be the only theatre company that annually tours total immersion Maori language theatre throughout the nation. The need for this season is as vital now as it was when Taki Rua began touring in the mid nineties.

The te reo Maori season encourages wider community involvement; appealing to tamariki, whanau, schools and community groups. The ever increasing demand and ongoing success of this season reinforces that Te Reo Maori is very much alive.

SYNOPSIS
This years Te Reo Maori production Karapinepine draws on the life of a prophet from our past in order to look at the way we live today. It asks Is there a prophet in each of us? What forces shape the path we follow in this life?

A WORD FROM THE DIRECTOR
Karapinepine is the action of gathering or drawing in close. The seeds for this work began with me drawing in on my curiosity around prophecy, superheroes and faith. Ngapaki Emery
