Te Reo Māori Theatre show for rangatahi
Hinepau doesn’t seem to fit in with her hapū. Her hair is bright red, her eyes are deep green, and all her weaving is inside out and back to front. Though she tries to hide her differences, her tribe decide Hinepau must be a witch, and send her to live alone in the forest. But when disaster strikes the village, Hinepau may just be the only one who can save them. Hinepau is adapted from a classic children’s book written by Gavin Bishop and first published in 1993. The 2017 production uses te reo Māori-speaking actors to present a mythical story about respecting your environment and staying true to yourself.
