Blue Baths, Government Gardens
Selling out this year’s Auckland Live Fringe Town and winner of ‘Pick of the Fringe’, ‘Best Dance’ and the ‘Auckland Arts Festival ‘Best of Fringe Award’, Haka Theatre company, Hawaiki TŪ’s powerful, Māori dance work, Taurite arrives to the Blue Baths in Rotorua from Thursday 10th – Saturday 12th September.
This time the company combines for a unique collaboration with Te Arawa’s leading regional champions Te Pikikōtuku o Ngati Rongomai who express exquisite prowess and harmonies as the art forms of Kapa Haka and Māori Dance are blended to transcend worlds.
Embodying the pursuit of balance and duality, Hawaiki TU’s second development of Taurite is a vital and ritualistic performative experience invoking ancestral roots in indigenous physical expressions of Māori Performing Arts.
Taurite translated as ‘The pursuit of Balance’ was described as a hidden gem in this year’s Auckland Fringe festival. Developed with the support of Auckland Live.
