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 Maori history; from utopian visions of a pre-European Aotearoa, to the emergence of the Maori prophetic movements, including that of T W Ratana; to meditations on current day capitalist dystopia. The show incorporates physical-theatre, choreography and live music.

Written by and featuring Mara TK and Tola Newbery
