Ngā Tohu O Te Taiao 
Rikki Solomon - Marcus Winter - Pūoro Jērome

Korekore te whīwhīa, Mahuru

Online (Zoom) from 6pm

Connecting to the maramataka through pūrakau, pūoro and toi onepū

This new performing arts concept-in-development builds our connection to the tohu of the natural world, celebrating the change in season through a digital arts experience. The performance brings together mātauranga Māori with Rikki Solomon, live sand art from Marcus Winter and taonga puoro from Pūoro Jērome.  In this first development of the project, these creatives weave stories of Kōanga through video and wānanga, connecting us to this time and place.

Tuia ki te whenua
Tuia ki te rangi
Tuia ki te moana
Rikki shares mātauranga around the tohu of the change of seasons from the skies, the land and manu, the ocean and our waterways. We then look to the marama and the night sky and ground ourselves in this time of Kōanga.
