Te Tangi a Te Tūī, he karanga nō te kainga, e tō anō ai i te ngākau ki te ngahere.
Ko te reo rāhiri tēnei a Te Tangi a Te Tūī, kia wheakotia e koe tēnei whakaari Māori Maninirau,
manarū, whakamana. He whakaari maninirau whakahirahira tēnei hei mātakinga mā te katoa.
Te Tangi a te Tūī invites you to experience an enchanting and empowering Māori cirque theatre work about adaptation and authenticity. A remarkable circus spectacle for audiences of all ages.
Ka mātai te Tūī i tana taiao, he waiata tana whakautu. Ahakoa te rerehua, hīrea ana te rangona o tana pāoro nō te wā i kākahutia a Papatūānuku ki te ngahere, kī katoa ngā rākau i te kōauau Patupaiarehe ā, ko te Māori anake e takahi nei i te whenua. Noho taurite ai te ngarohanga o te reo ō Tūī me ngā aupiki, au heke o te reo Māori. Ko tā tēnei whakaari mahi he whakakotahi i te Kaupapa Māori me ngā mahi maninirau kia hua mai he pakiwai pūkare mō te aroha me te ripa tau-ārai i waenga i te Māori, te Patupaiarehe me ngā whakaawe o te ao huri e tāmi nei i Te Taiao.
The Tūī soaks up the world around it and responds in song. Though beautiful, their tune now is a faint echo from when Aotearoa was blanketed in the ngahere, flutes of Patupairehe filled the trees, and Māori alone walked gently upon their mother. The loss of the original voice of the Tūī parallels the forces of loss and regeneration of te reo Māori. This show combines Kaupapa Māori and cirque theatre to create an evocative narrative of love and loss between Māori, Patupairehe and the natural world facing colonial impact.
He mea whakarewa tēnei whakaari e Te Rēhia Theatre Company me The Dust Palace.
This Aotearoa premiere is a collaboration between Te Rēhia Theatre Company, Te Pou Theatre and The Dust Palace, originally commissioned by The Cultch and Urban Ink and supported by Manatū Taonga, Ministry for Culture and Heritage
