Hatupatu | Kurungaituku : A Forbidden Love is a story of survival and love between the young Te Arawa warrior Hatupatu and the unique bird woman that is Kurungaituku.

Combining breathtaking aerials, kapa haka and an immersive multi-media performance environment, the predominantly standing audience will experience the bird realm flying over the audience’s heads; led by the omnipresent Kurungaituku. In a De La Guarda-inspired immersive environment, Artistic Director Tānemahuta Gray; (Māui – One Man Against The Gods, Tiki Taane Mahuta), brings his experience performing with this world-leading aerial theatre company, to share this unique performance genre with New Zealand audiences nationwide. Tānemahuta joins forces with Wētini Mītai-Ngātai, leader of the two-time Te Mataini winning national kapa haka rōpū Te Mātārae i Ōrehu to present a contemporary Māori theatrical experience you will not want to miss.
