This year, Taki Rua are taking on their most ambitious project yet – touring the performing arts epic Tiki Taane Mahuta, starring the legendary Tiki Taane, to thirteen cities around Aotearoa.
Live music, theatre, aerial performance, contemporary dance, kapa haka, mau rākau and hip hop unite in Tiki Taane Mahuta, one of New Zealand’s largest nationally-devised productions ever. Nine leading performers will showcase on New Zealand’s greatest stages, while Tiki Taane plays his soundtrack live with support from Shapeshifter’s Sam Trevethick.
Tiki Taane Mahuta depicts two generations of New Zealand families and the tragedy, hope and redemption which connect them. Expanding beyond the 1996 and 2013 settings, the production explores the ancestral realm which oversees the characters’ whakapapa – genealogy. Tiki Taane Mahuta shows the importance of community rejuvenation and the strength found through connecting with whakapapa.
Created by renowned artistic director and Taki Rua Kahukura Tānemahuta Gray, a six-show season of Tiki Taane Mahuta debuted in 2015 at the Isaac Theatre Royal in Christchurch.
“This is a show not to be missed, with powerful messages told through beautiful artistry and downright magnificent dancing.”
