Kurawaka depicts the ancient Māori creation story in a vivid retelling through contemporary haka theatre which incorporates the multiple disciplines of Kapa Haka. The talented artists of Hawaiki TU perform the arts of karakia, waiata, taonga pūoro, traditional movement and mau rākau to tell the tale, while utilising vibrant cinematic imagery and lighting effects to set the scene.

Kurawaka is known in Māori mythology as the sacred site where mankind was fashioned from kokowai (red soil) by Tāne, the creator of the human race and god of the forest and all its creatures. Kurawaka is inspired by Tāne and Hine’s story and draws on the parallel themes of restoring our environment and spiritual connection to the land by balancing the universal energies of ‘Te Taha Wahine’ and ‘Te Taha Tane’.
