Caring for our environment and respecting others is celebrated at Capital E, with the internationally acclaimed stage adaptation of Gavin Bishop’s much-loved book Hinepau, for the July School Holidays.

Directed by Murray Lynch, The Dominion Post season of Hinepau is an enchanting contemporary Maori tale that celebrates difference and diversity, the importance of staying true to oneself and honouring the environment as a taonga.

Ideal for children over eight years and adults alike, the show follows the life of Hinepau, a young girl banished from her tribe because she is different. However, later, when disaster strikes, it is Hinepau’s resilience and understanding of the natural world that saves her people from destruction. Hinepau beautifully celebrates the importance of New Zealand’s unique cultural heritage.

Hinepau originally premiered at Capital E in 2005, and has since had a hugely successful Australian tour, performing to over 7000 children at The Sydney Opera House and The Arts Centre in Melbourne.

This vibrant and appealing season of Hinepau, presented by the National Theatre for Children, is sure to foster a love and respect for New Zealand’s unique place in the world. Perfect family entertainment during the holiday break.
