PŪRĀKAU: MĀORI MYTHS RETOLD
A line-up of Māori writers join forces with multi-instrumentalist Kingsley Melhuish for a night of storytelling interwoven with music, inspired by the new book Pūrākau: Māori Myths Retold. Imagine a sensual retelling of Tāne’s creation of Hine, Māui as a beleaguered sports star, or an Aotearoa where whakapapa is downloaded via app. Join Whiti Hereaka (who edited Pūrākau with Witi Ihimaera), Kelly Joseph, Nic Low, Tina Makereti, Paula Morris, and Regan Taylor (reading for Vancouver-based David Geary) for an hour of mythic magic.
