TE REREKA TRANSFORMATION - Our previous puppet show, TE REREKA-THE FLIGHT, was adapted as a six-chapter te reo maori audiobook for the Ministry of Education, for their new on-line site TE KAUWHATA. The story is called TE REREKA WAIRUA O POURAKAHUA and has also been published as a musical audiobook of the same name, available for purchase from AUDIOBOOKNZ. This te reo Kāi Tahu adaptation has just been re-written by me for a TAKI RUA PRODUCTION national tour in 2021, 2022 with a new company of puppeteers, designers and director. The evolution of this māori rock-art inspired story as it continues to manifest in different mediums, including clothing and TORO PIKOPIKO TALES audiobooks - is exciting.
