Is that my nipple hair between your teeth? You’re welcome. 

Wahinetanga in this current climate, and the day and night duality of being fiercely everything at once, is shared by this kāhui whetū of multi-talented performers.

The wāhine of KŌPŪ weave live music, performance, poetry and poi to share a hilariously honest and no-holds-barred account of their femininity on their own terms.

Answer the call of a cheeky ballad of a show that shares the songs of young wāhine Māori as they navigate this world, hairy nipples first, in the footsteps of the naughty nannies from the kāuta.

So… kindly unpeg yourself from the patriarchy, check your white feminism at the door, and join us in a hearty musical celebration of the ira wahine within us all.

Featuring Tuakoi Ohia, Brady Peeti, Jane Leonard, Ngākirikiri Kershaw, Te Huamanuka Luiten-Apirana, and Te Arohanui Way-Korewha.

Recommended for ages 13+
