Hiwa Ki Uta, Hiwa Ki Tai

From Summer Times 2020/2021, 10:05 am on 20 January 2021

Haka, waita, tī rākau stick games and poi work are all being combined in a new show telling the story of  Māui fishing up Te Ika a Māui the North Island. 

Māori performing arts group HIWA are also using their amazingly wide range of talents to tell the stories of the first voyagers and wayfinders who made their way across the pacific by the stars. 

The show is called Hiwa Ki Uta, Hiwa Ki Tai: a desire to arrive is a desire to explore, and it's on now!
