Nau mai, haere mai.
Taki Rua presents a free whānau showing of Pourakahua, as part of our 2021 Te Reo Māori Season tour. This beautiful Te Reo Māori play all in the Kāi Tahu dialect celebrates the ancient Arowhenua rock art, and is written by Jeffrey Addison.

Whai mai i Pourakahua, he takata momorua, he manu anō hoki. Ko ia tonu e topa haere ana ki kā tōpito ātaahua i Aotearoa. Ka tūtakina e ia he hoa hou, nāna rātou i arataki. Ko tāna hoki he karo i kā kaitaomanu.
Join Pourakahua, a cross between human and bird, on a journey of self-discovery as they fly across the stunning landscapes of Aotearoa to find their true home. They meet interesting friends along the way, coming to their aid while also evading the dangerous bird hunters, the “Kaitaomanu".
