Rauru is a form of weaving pattern where three ropes are twined into one, typically a spiral pattern. It is also the Māori word for umbilical cord, specifically the part connected to the mother.

Written by Cian Gardner and Karina Nathan and directed by Kathleen Christian, Rauru explores concepts of family, identity and loss through the story of Ruby, Ata, and their ailing grandmother.

Preparing for a Tangi, family secrets are uncovered, and old wounds are opened as the women straddle dual cultures and battle ghosts from their past. The family home welcomes some, and repels others. The relationship between the three Māori women is fraught, honest, loving and real. None of them perfect, all very different, but all indelibly connected to each other.

Presented by Cove Theatre, Rauru is a story told with gentleness, humour and compassion about people you will recognise, maybe even within yourself.
