AdvertisementHe kaupapa mīharo kei te haere, arā, ko 'Marae in the Sky'. He whakaaturanga nui i waihanga motuhake mai mō Matariki, nā te ringa tohu, nā te kaikanikani matua a Taane Mete (Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāti Korokī Kahukura) Kia rumakina koe ki tētahi kanikani me tētahi whakaari puoro e hāngai ana ki te whetū matua, ki a Matariki. E tohu ana tēnei mahi hou i te hauora, te tūmanako, te huritao, te hononga ki te taiao, me te oranga o ngā tāngata katoa. I takea mai te whakaaro mō 'Marae in the Sky' i tētahi kāhui āniwaniwa nō te ngahurutau 1990, nā rātou te hapori i whakatau, i āwhina i tērā wā. Ko te whakakitenga a ia kaiwhakaari ka whakakotahi i ngā pūrākau Māori me ngā kōrero tūturu, hei whakaatu i ngā nekehanga kounga, i ngā waiata me ngā puoro i ngā whakaari e whā. Ka whakaaritia a 'Marae in the Sky' e Taane Mete (Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāti Korokī Kahukura), nō Te Toi Hauora – The Art of Healing. Ka waiatatia ngā waiata e Taisha Tari (Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāpuhi). Ka whakatangihia te tōiri e Peau Halapua (Lapaha, Mu’a; and Hihifo, Niuatoputapu; Kingdom of Tonga). Ka mutu, he titonga motuhake nā Josh Clark (Ngāpuhi). Kia mōhio mai, he mōrahi tāngata e taea ana i tēnei kaupapa. He mea tautoko a 'Marae in the Sky' nā Stout Trust.
Be blown away by 'Marae in the Sky', a powerful new performance created exclusively for Matariki and directed and choreographed by Taane Mete (Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāti Korokī Kahukura). Experience an immersive dance and music performance centred on the mother whetū (star) Matariki. This new work signifies hauora (health), hope, reflection, connection to nature and the environment, and the wellbeing of all people. 'Marae in the Sky' draws inspiration from a local Rainbow collective from the 1990s which welcomed and served the community at the time. Through the eyes of each creative, reimagined representation of true stories and Māori mythology merge seamlessly together to present world-class choreography, waiata and music in four breath-taking performances. 'Marae in the Sky' is performed by Taane Mete from Te Toi Hauora – The Art of Healing (Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāti Korokī Kahukura), waiata sung by Taisha Tari (Ngāti Kahungunu, Ngāpuhi), violin performed by Peau Halapua (Lapaha, Mu’a; and Hihifo, Niuatoputapu; Kingdom of Tonga) and original composition by Josh Clark (Ngāpuhi).
