"Tuia Matauranga" from what I work out is something to do with knowledge in the Maori language and the whole show focuses on "Takutai Moana" or coastal sea and "Te moana nui a Kiwa" or the Pacific Ocean with it being all about our "kai moana" or seafood.
Inside the trailer there were diagrams, illustrations and boards set up. Because we were so interested we were given a colouring book and pencils which we were pass onto my brother's children.
So as it's rich in Te Reo Maori langage, it's an upbeat show with catchy music and has a question and answer session afterwards.
The show runs for about 45 minutes, the trailer has been designed for touring purposes and there are 40 puppets in all.
The production was created by Sarah Burren who collaborated with Midge Perez. Because they recognized the significance of Matariki (meaning a celebration, spending time with family as well as agriculture and restarting the Maori calender) to many Kiwis they also collaborated with a Kaumatua (a Maori elder) Dr Haare Williams.
Linking up with Mural Monday.
...it's not fair to limit it to kids 10 and under!
I presume it will be heading this way. I am a kid at heart.
This is where 'borrowing' a toddler comes in handy if one doesn't have one of one's own.
Beautiful project! Love it. I wouldn´t mind the age, either, it should welcome anybody interested! The more the better! We all want to learn, esp in a fun way!
What a great idea. A fun way to learn.
It's wonderful that you came across this. Sounds great for kids any age.
Very nice find! What luck.

p.s. Had death in family so am way behind in returning comments.
How fun to stumble on something like this! I’d want to pretend I was a kid (it would be pretty hard to get away with that at my advanced age), but I have never outgrown this sort of thing.
It sounds great. A shame they didn't advertise it a bit more.
Great find Amy. What a pity the exhibition was for under 10's only.
Thanks for participating in Monday Murals
I would enjoy this show, looks great. Take care, enjoy your new week!
That looks fascinating. You were lucky to find it.
I agree with Tom, not fair! I would love seeing this.
That is very cool. Good for kids of all ages!!
Sounds like a lot of fun Amy and educational too. Children learn so much more when it's taught this way 💙
Muy bien elaborado, para atrae la atención de los visitantes.
Small world story, my daughter made the costumes for that show and sewed the puppets for next year's show.
