Toro Pikopiko Puppets are touring the world’s first Māori Rock-Art Puppet Musical. Jeffrey Addison (Ngai Tahu) and Whaitaima Te Whare (Ngati Tuwharetoa) are a dynamic performance duo with 22 years experience creating puppet theatre, radio & television programs for children.
Their latest production - TE RERENGA – THE FLIGHT is an acoustic rock musical, featuring 80 ‘Flatso’ puppets inspired from ancient cave drawings made on Limestone cliffs and caves around the Timaru district. The show re-tells a Ngai Tahu legend about Pourangahua and her epic flight to Aotearoa, with the aid of Matariki stars and migrating whales. She flies from cave to cave, meeting a host of colourful characters including Bats, Creepy Crawlies, Moa, Pouakai Eagles, and Human Bird Hunters – intent on making Pourangahua their next meal.
TE RERENGA – THE FLIGHT is a 1 hour show, with 8 catchy original songs written especially for years 1 – 8 primary school children. This immersive production takes its audience back in time hundreds of years where they help animate a multitude of rock art characters who meet up with Pou, while she is seeking her own kind. Children interactively learn about our rock-art heritage by animating 2 dimensional rock-art puppets throughout the show.
