Acclaimed te reo Māori production He Kura E Huna Ana will perform at BATS in June as part of the 2018 Kia Mau Festival.

Drawn from traditional Ngāti Waewae kōrero, He Kura E Huna Ana tells of the origins of pounamu in Arahura Valley. When Tauranga Moana ancestor Waitaiki is abducted by a jealous taniwha, her lover Tamaahua pursues them to the depths of the Arahura River.

​Returning to her papa kāinga on the anniversary of her family's death, young Hine seeks consolation in the myths of Arahura. Raised solely by her Taua, Hine battles the grief that left her tipuna transformed into pounamu.

Written by Hōhepa Waitoa, directed by Nancy Brunning.

Tickets on sale soon.
