Taki Rua are bringing the performing arts epic Tiki Taane Mahuta, starring the legendary Tiki Taane, to Ashburton for the first time at Ashburton Event Centre on Friday 9th June.

Live music, theatre, aerial performance, contemporary dance, kapa haka, mau rākau and hip hop unite in Tiki Taane Mahuta, one of New Zealandís largest nationally-devised productions ever. Nine of our nation's leading performers will showcase on New Zealand's greatest stages, while Tiki Taane plays his soundtrack live with support from Shapeshifter's Sam Trevethick.

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 settings, the production explores the ancestral realm which oversees the charactersí whakapapa - genealogy. Tiki Taane Mahuta shows the importance of community rejuvenation and the strength found through connecting with whakapapa.
