Ngā Manu Rōreka: Auckland Arts Festival
Time & Location
About The Event
Join our team for one of few public performances of Ngā Manu Rōreka, a te reo Māori children's production performing at schools and kura throughout Aotearoa in 2020. Bookings not required - simply turn up on time for the performance.
Ramai and Takimana are two troublesome yet talented junior high school students struggling with rules and boundaries, school and authority. Underneath their cool hard exterior are two students with dreams but no belief; ambition, yet no motivation.
Ramai and Takimana find the support they need from two ancestral Poupou, who by the grace of Tane, are able to return disguised as students to guide their descendants. Many lessons are learnt through trust and respect, but life’s journey is not an easy road - as Ramai and Takimana soon discover.
Students are encouraged to be active and show their support to Ramai and Takimana as they embark on a journey of learning and self-discovery.
