2018 Te Reo Māori Season
Hine Kihāwai may have left the world of the living, but she lives on in the memories of her children Tama and Te Aniwa. Against all odds, her tamariki fight to hold on to her teachings, her wisdom, her songs – everything they knew and loved about her. Only through retaining all that she gave them can they truly face the challenges of their turbulent world. The 2018 Te Reo Māori Season is a retelling of the 2003 children’s play Āwhina. Written by the highly regarded composer, teacher and Māori leader Hone Hurihanganui, Hine Kihāwai has been redeveloped for a new generation of tamariki. 2018 tour – schools, kura and community venues nationwide. July 23 – September 28.
Cast: Roimata Fox / Trae Te Wiki / Reuben Butler / Eds Eramiha / Amanda Noblett.
