Te Tangi a Te Tūī, he karanga nō te kainga, e tō anō ai i te ngākau ki te ngahere.

An epic tale of love, loss and hope - weaving te reo Māori and cirque theatre.

Te Tangi a te Tūī invites you to experience an enchanting and empowering Māori cirque theatre work about adaptation and authenticity. A remarkable circus spectacle for audiences of all ages.

The Tūī soaks up the world around it and responds in song. Though beautiful, their tune now is a faint echo from when Aotearoa was blanketed in the ngahere, flutes of Patupairehe filled the trees, and Māori alone walked gently upon their mother. The loss of the original voice of the Tūī parallels the forces of loss and regeneration of te reo Māori. This show combines Kaupapa Māori and cirque theatre to create an evocative narrative of love and loss between Māori, Patupairehe and the natural world facing colonial impact.

He mea whakarewa tēnei whakaari e Te Rēhia Theatre Company me The Dust Palace.
