ngA waiata o te pO

ABOUT

Gather up the whānau and join us on a mid-winter journey as we weave together strands of myth, music, song and storytelling into a magical, interactive online experience made for the entire family.

We invite you to a meeting place between Western classical music and traditional Māori music – a space to reflect on who we are and where we stand as New Zealanders in Aotearoa in 2020.

What songs do we carry with us? What tunes do we teach our children? What stories and histories do these songs tell?

In an exciting collaboration with the Hunter Collective, this work is the first chapter in a series of nine stories, taking place over the next nine years. Each year’s event will draw inspiration from one of the stars in the cluster – Matariki and her children – to tell a new story.

Four bite-sized webisodes screen across July to celebrate Matariki, with the full live theatrical event touring later in 2020.

The adventure begins 12 July. Join us!
