It’s Taurite With Me

We saw this show yesterday , part of the Auckland Fringe Festival, and it was amazing! (I think in Te Reo Māori it would be pronounced TAOH-ri-teh which ruins the “awright” pun in the post title. But just go with it, okay?)

I admit to some trepidation about going to a Māori modern dance program… but again… amazing.

Hard to describe, but they somehow combined the haka (the challenging dance you see before an All Blacks game) and some pretty high concept dance and some martial arts stuff and some singing and chanting and probably a bunch of Māori mythology references I missed.
