Ka tangi te Tītī, ka tangi te Kākā, ka tangi hoki ko ēnei Pīpī Paopao!

Tihei māuri ora!

Pīpī Paopao is a performance for tamariki aged 3-5year olds - and their adults - which adopts the unique characteristics of our Manu Rangatira (noble birdlife) through waiata and play.

Pīpī Paopao continues the Māori traditions of using proverbs and metaphors of the natural world to teach and prepare our own little hatchlings; so they too may flourish and fly into a world of their own.

They may be the kind who soars through the towering trees, or sits quietly in a shady grove - either way, this piece of theatre-through-song is as interactive as you’d like it to be.

So whether you’re fluent in Te Reo Māōri or your journey is only beginning, come and explore the beauty of a language that echoes the sounds of Te Taiao (nature).

The Tītī chatters, the Kākā cackles, and the Kererū coos - which Manu are you?

A Metro Māori Productions. Made with the support of Creative New Zealand Toi Aotearoa.
