This two-person show Poropiti 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; to meditations on current day capitalism.

The show incorporates physical theatre, choreography and live music, and brings innovative theatre practitioner Tola Newbery, and the acclaimed voice and musical presence of Mara TK into challenging multi-disciplinary roles on stage; roles that evoke the surreal and avantgarde as well as deep aspects from their own indigenous history.

Told in movement, song, sound and theatrical lyricism, it is a beautiful surrealist duet, a long meditative poem that ultimately searches for redemption and peace.

Written by: Mara TK and Tola Newbery
Lighting Design by: Glenn Ashworth
Produced by: Gareth Farry from Sugarlicks
