By Fresh Movement Arts and Freshman's Dance Crew

Fri 23 - Sat 24 Aug


Experience the best of contemporary storytelling, as Fresh Movement reawaken Māori and Pacifica stories on stage. Māui is a vibrant retelling of the many tales of Pacific demi-god, Māui. A beautiful blend of hip hop, contemporary dance, music, theatre, spoken word and projected animations bring the stories to life like never before. 

Choreographed by Hadleigh Pouesi and Christopher Ofanoa, Māui is an epic journey through myth and legend. The cast of 30 performers demonstrates strength, growth, leadership and vulnerability through movement. 

Māui opens with the story of Pacific migration and the stories, myths and legends travelled throughout the Pacific, as our mighty Pacific warriors conquered the largest of all the oceans. From there, the story is told in chapters, with each scene highlighting a tale of Māui and a characteristic shown through his adventures. 

Māui is inspiring, energetic, and at times heart wrenching theatre work that you don’t want to miss.
