About

Acclaimed te reo Māori production He Kura E Huna Ana will perform at the War Memorial Theatre in June.

Drawn from traditional Ngāti Waewae kōrero, He Kura E Huna Ana tells of the origins of pounamu in Arahura Valley. When Tauranga Moana ancestor Waitaiki is abducted by a jealous taniwha, her lover Tamaahua pursues them to the depths of the Arahura River.

​Returning to her papa kāinga on the anniversary of her family's death, young Hine seeks consolation in the myths of Arahura. Raised solely by her Taua, Hine battles the grief that left her tipuna transformed into pounamu.

Written by Hōhepa Waitoa, directed by Nancy Brunning.

He Kura E Huna Ana is performing a FREE student-exclusive matinee in Gisborne, thanks to funding from Eastland Community Trust. Book for our student matinee here: http://www.takirua.co.nz/hkeha-booking
