Well-known musician Tiki Taane (Ngāti Maniapoto) and multidisciplinary artist Kereama Taepa (Te Arawa, Te Āti Awa) have joined forces to create a new world-building experience - Mai Te Uira.

Grounded in karakia that references the atua and the whakapapa of our artforms, Mai Te Uira explores how innovation can be transformative when we open our minds to new ways of thinking.

Told through the stories of three atua; Te Uira the atua of lightning and new connections like technology, digital culture, and cyberspace; Tānemahuta, a creator himself, providing us with our own capability and capacity to create; and Hine-te-Iwaiwa, whose strength we seek when searching for knowledge to give, receive, and connect; this creative collaboration of music and digital animation reflects the transmission of knowledge and cements ancestral relationships.

Conceived for local communities in community spaces, this unique performance will take place at Kōraunui Neighbourhood Hub. Mai Te Uira has been enabled through a partnership between The Dowse Art Museum and Chamber Music New Zealand.
