Te Tangi a te Tūī
Te Tangi a te Tūī; he karanga nō te kāinga, pulling us heartfirst back to the ngahere.
Te Tangi a te Tūī invites you to experience an enchanting and empowering Māori cirque theatre work about adaptation and authenticity. A remarkable circus spectacle for audiences of all ages.
The Tūī soaks up the world around it and responds in song. Though beautiful, its tune now is a faint echo from when Aotearoa was blanketed in the ngahere, where flutes of Patupaiarehe filled the trees, and Māori alone walked gently upon their mother. The loss of the original voice of the Tūī parallels the forces of loss and regeneration of te reo Māori.
This Aotearoa premiere is a collaboration between Te Rēhia Theatre Company, Te Pou Theatre and The Dust Palace, originally commissioned by The Cultch and Urban Ink and supported by Manatū Taonga, Ministry for Culture and Heritage.
