About the event

Ka tangi te Tītī, ka tangi te Kākā, ka tangi hoki ko ēnei Pīpī Paopao! Tihei māuri ora!

Pīpī Paopao is a performance for tamariki aged three to five years old - and their adults - which adopts the unique characteristics of our Manu Rangatira (noble birdlife) through waiata and play.  Pīpī Paopao continues the Māori traditions of using proverbs and metaphors of the natural world to teach and prepare our own little hatchlings; so they too may flourish and fly into a world of their own.

The Tītī chatters, the Kākā cackles, and the Kererū coos - which Manu are you?
