    Te Kuia Me Te Pūngāwerewere

    Date: March 24, 2019

    Time: 12:00 am to 12:00 am

    Inspired by author Patricia Grace’s and illustrator Robyn Kahukiwa’s classic children’s book The Kuia and the Spider, Te Kuia Me Te Pūngāwerewere is a delightful, comedic prequel that takes audiences on a journey into spider world. In this beloved tale, the kuia (female elder) argues with a large spider living in her kitchen and competes to see who can do the best weaving. While in the midst of their daily bickering, Kui and Pūpai are suddenly thrust from their home in Paekākāriki and into spider world. There amongst the spiders, they must work together to save the habitat from human destruction. Performed entirely in te reo Māori, but full of gestures and movement so that everyone can follow along, this splendid show breathes new life into an iconic Kiwi story cherished by children and parents all over Aotearoa. Adapted from The Kuia and the Spider by Patricia Grace, with illustrations by Robyn Kahukiwa. Te reo Māori translation by Hōhepa Waitoa. Please follow and like us:
