A meeting point of Tola Newbery’s innovative physical theatre and Mara TK’s maverick musical explorations.

From critically acclaimed songwriter and performer Mara TK, and innovative theatre practitioner Tola Newbery comes a beautiful surrealist duet, a meditation on pre-European Aotearoa, the emergence of Māori prophetic movements (including those of T W Ratana and Te Whiti) and their fracture with modern day capitalist dystopia.

Told in movement, song, sound and theatrical lyricism, Poropiti evokes the surreal and avant-garde as well as deep aspects of Māori indigenous history.
