About the event

Kōpū calls you in to a cheeky ballad of a show, sharing the songs of our young wāhine Māori as they navigate this world, hairy nipples first, following in the footsteps of our naughty nannies from the kāuta.

Our kāhui whetū of multi-talented performers weave live music, performance, poetry, and poi to share a hilarious honest and no hold barred account of their experiences of wāhinetanga now; The day and night duality of being fiercely everything at once.

So, kindly unpeg yourself from the patriarchy, check your white feminism at the door and join in a hearty musical celebration of the ira Wāhine in us all. Is that my nipple hair between your teeth? You’re welcome.

End times are approximate.
