Sometimes our greatest discoveries lie within ourselves.

Aboard a cramped British scientific vessel in the vastness of the Pacific, two navigators find themselves locked on a collision course. One is a Tahitian priest, guided by his ancient knowledge of star pathways. The other a naval officer, desperate to prove both himself and his faith in science.

This beautiful and haunting new work by composer Tim Finn with Tahitian monologues by Célestine Hitiura Vaite tells the story of Tupaia, the Tahitian star navigator who sailed with James Cook, on the maiden voyage of the Endeavour in 1769. Ihitai ‘Avei’a - Star Navigator explores the relationship between two master mariners, each from vastly different worlds, both far from home and unable to find their way into each other’s world.

Songs by Tim Finn and Tahitian monologues by Célestine Hitiura Vaite.
A concert piece with Manukau Symphony Orchestra, Auckland Choral and The Graduate Choir.
Duration: 90 minutes. This production is sung in English and Tahitian with English surtitles.
