CAF Festival Lounge: CAF Poropiti
08 Sep to 09 Sep
Told through movement, song, sound and theatrical lyricism, Poropiti is a beautiful surrealist duet with Tola Newbery’s innovative physical theatre and Mara TK’s deep and soulful musical explorations.
The story is a series of vignettes
traversing different points in Māori history; from utopian visions of a
pre-European Aotearoa, to the emergence of the Māori prophetic movements,
including that of T W Ratana; to meditations on current day capitalist dystopia.
The show incorporates physical theatre, choreography and live music.
