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

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

Pīpī Paopao is a performance for preschoolers, exploring the unique characteristics of Manu (birds) through waiata (song).

Let this one-man-concert-band guide your imagination through music, by echoing the sounds of our native birds until they hatch into song. Whether you soar through the towering trees, or sit quietly in a shady grove, this ‘concert with kōrero’ is as interactive as you’d like it to be.

Pīpī Paopao continues 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.
