Originally commissioned by NZ Festival 2018 https://www.festival.co.nz/2018/events/ka-tito-au-kupes-heroic-journey/ Kupe, the great Pacific explorer and navigator, is the hero of this lively, lyrical solo show by treasured local poet and storyteller Apirana Taylor, performed by Tola Newbery. Legend has it that Kupe discovered Aotearoa after pursuing Te Wheke-a-Muturangi, a giant octopus that was endangering his people’s fishing grounds in the Pacific. Be enchanted by the exhilarating tale of Kupe’s many exploits and celebrate with us our shared voyaging past and future.
