Many moons ago, a different kind of superhero ruled this side of the Pacific: Māui-Tikitiki-A-Taranga.

A warrior and demigod, Māui’s adventures are woven into the fabric of Pacific history. Here in Aotearoa, this ‘Māori Superman’ enjoyed the best of the natural and spiritual worlds. He was fast, fit, and funny. The total package.

In this cabaret of hilarious and vocally wild proportions, join Rutene Spooner’s whirlwind quest to become the modern-day Māori hero — anything could happen! Perhaps this ‘haka-boogie-hori’ will realise that in order to cast forward, he must pull from the past, back to the ancient ones.

Lols from start to finish and a pair of lungs ready to rip your hats off: Rutene is the musical hero of our hearts! Enjoy!

Developed in partnership with Auckland Live and supported by Creative New Zealand. Premiered as part of the Auckland Live Cabaret Season 2021.
