Image for Marae in the Sky

Marae in the Sky

Be blown away by Marae in the Sky, a powerful new performance created for Matarikidirected, and choreographed by Taane Mete (Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāti Korokī Kahukura).  

This immersive dance and music performance is centred on the mother whetū (star) Matariki and draws inspiration from a local Rainbow collective from the 1990s. True stories and Māori mythology merge seamlessly to present world-class choreography, waiata (song) and music in four breath-taking performances. 

Performed by Taane Mete, with waiata by Taisha Tari, violin by Peau Halapua and original composition by Josh Clark. 

Please note this event has limited capacity. 

Supported by the Stout Trust and the city centre targeted rate.
