Event description

Immerse yourself in the enchanting tapestry of Woven, a mesmerising multidisciplinary masterpiece by Taisha Tari co-directed by Whetu Silver in collaboration with Komako Silver (taonga pūoro practitioner) , Zion Jones (dancer) , Danielle Renee (poet) and Hayden Kuhtze (music composer). 

Woven seamlessly intertwines the expressions of four extraordinary artists, sharing pūrakau (ancient stories) of old in a contemporary expression of ritual performance through waiata, movement, taonga pūoro (elemental instruments) and spoken word poetry. A world where aroha, ancestor, culture and cosmology are laid before you, an offering to the devotion to our matriarchal whakapapa (genealogy).

At the centre of this work is Taisha Tari, the weaver, harmoniously uniting these stories and threads of culture, language, whanau and whenua into a collective korowai to unify the audience in an immersive experience of tradition and belonging.

Woven beckons you into the captivating world of Te Ao Māori, the natural world, inviting you to explore and celebrate the delicacy of cultural narratives and shared humanity in the human experience. Don't miss this unique, harmonious experience.

If you've already experienced Woven yumminess, you may want to come again. Woven has progressed further by including video projection, different stage configurations and props to allow a captivating and diverse experience no matter the environment we are blessed to perform in. This versatility allows us to tailor every show to suit the venue be it a town hall, black box, theatre, marae, spiegel tent, garden or other outdoor setting. No two shows are the same.

Doors and bar open from 6pm, ahead of the performance at 7pm.
