After a stunning 2015 debut seen by 3,500 in Christchurch, the Te Rānanga o Ngāi Tahu Season of Tiki Taane Mahuta returns to tour 13 cities in Aotearoa in 2017.
Combining theatre, spectacular aerials, contemporary dance, kapa haka, mau rākau and hip hop, Tiki Taane Mahuta is one of New Zealand’s largest nationally-devised productions set to the award winning soundtracks of Tiki Taane.
Created by Artistic Director Tānemahuta Gray, this tour sees Tiki Taane and Shapeshifter’s Sam Trevethick perform live with the production for the first time. This production is transforming the music industry with how theatrical narrative can combine with Tiki’s cannon of works to create a whole new genre of integrated live performance.
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 time periods, the production explores the ancestral realm which oversees the onstage characters with large scale visual projections.
Tiki Taane Mahuta has an experienced cast, crew and design team who have worked on WOW – World Of WearableArt Awards and Māui – One Man Against The Gods.
