Acclaimed te reo Māori production He Kura E Huna Ana is touring the North Island for the first time in 2018.
Drawn from traditional Ngāti Waewae kōrero, He Kura E Huna Ana tells of the origins of pounamu in Arahura Valley. Set in two distinct time periods - one ancestral, and one contemporary. He Kura E Huna Ana shows that the two are inseparable, and losing sight of our origins can be dangerous.
When Tauranga Moana ancestor Waitaiki is abducted by Poutini, the 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.
