  • Dance
  • World Premiere

SCHOOL TICKETS AVAILABLE

A return to ancestral origins and legacy. Mystical and magical beings. One man’s journey of self-rediscovery.

Having lost touch with his Māori heritage, caught up in the rat race of urban humanity and drifting further from his roots, Rehua takes us on his personal journey towards healing and redemption. A life-altering decision changes the pathway, guiding his return to the whenua and waterways of his forbears. Steeped in history, emotion, and an inherent connection with patupaiarehe, the ancestors guide Rehua as his identity resurfaces while learning to integrate his past with his present self.

Contemporary dance, explosive and innovative physical theatre, taonga puoro, and kōrero tuku iho combine to bring us this story of hope and reconnection.
