About the event

To much acclaim, Mai Te Uira was premiered in Koraunui Stokes Valley in 2023, and is grounded in a karakia that references the atua and the whakapapa of our art forms and explores how innovation can be transformative when we open our minds to new ways of thinking.

Told through the stories of three atua – Te Uira, the atua of lightning and new connections like technology, digital culture, and cyberspace; Tānemahuta, a creator himself, providing us with our own capability and capacity to create; and Hine-te-Iwaiwa, whose strength we seek when searching for knowledge to give, receive, and connect – this creative collaboration of music and digital animation reflects the transmission of knowledge and cements ancestral relationships.

Doors open at 6 pm, show starts at 7:30pm.
