All Ages

Taki Rua is excited to present 'Te Kuia me te Pūngāwerewere' in a highly engaging, 25-minute piece of theatre in te reo Māori specially for pre school aged tamariki and their whānau. Suitable for young children of all backgrounds, 'Te Kuia me te Pūngāwerewere' is on tour this September.

About our show

Inspired by the beloved children's story 'The Kuia and the Spider' by Patricia Grace, with illustrations by Robyn Kahukiwa, Jamie McCaskill's original Te Reo Māori Season play has been shortened into a 25-minute show with pre school aged tamariki in mind.

Performed completely in te reo Māori, 'Te Kuia me te Pūngāwerewere' is the untold story of the Kuia and her relationship with Pūpai the spider. While in the midst of their daily bickering, Kuia and Pūpai are suddenly transported from their home in Paekākāriki into the world of spiders. There, they must work together to save Spider World from the human world's suburban sprawl.
