Hine Kihāwai

3 August 2018

Taki Rua present a free te reo Māori theatre performance for the whole whānau!

Hine Kihāwai may have left the world of the living, but she lives on in the memories of her children Tama and Te Aniwa. Against all odds, her tamariki fight to hold on to her teachings, her wisdom, her songs – everything they knew and loved about her. Only through retaining all that she gave them can they truly face the challenges of their turbulent world.

The show is entirely in te reo Māori, but uses gestures and movement so that even non-speakers can follow along.

Venue: Hinemaurea Marae, 33 Marae Rd, Hicks Bay 4087

Time: 5.30pm - 6.30pm

Tickets: Admission is free


The 2018 Te Reo Māori Season is a retelling of the 2003 children's play Āwhina. Written by the highly regarded composer, teacher and Māori leader Hone Hurihanganui, Hine Kihāwai has been redeveloped for a new generation of tamariki.

Gisborne performances brought to you with support from Eastland Community Trust.
