Many moons ago, a superhero of a different kind ruled this side of the Pacific. His name was Māui-Tikitiki-A-Taranga – MĀUI. A warrior and demigod, his adventures are woven into the fabric of Pacific history. In Aotearoa, this ‘Māori Superman’ was fast, fit, and funny. He was the total package. He slowed the sun, fished up the North Island and brought fire to the world – to name just a few of his feats!
Burgeoning music theatre star Rutene Spooner is channelling this Māori hero into a modern-day icon – complete with rhinestones and glitter. This ‘haka-boogie-hori’ will be pulling out all his tricks from the past and reincarnating Māui into a living breathing musical rock star before your very eyes.
Featuring an original script from Rutene Spooner, direction from Matariki Whatarau, music from Te Aihe Butler, Tim Shacklock & Rutene Spooner and costuming by Tina Thomas, Thoroughly Modern Māui is a full-scale cabaret extravaganza, and an unforgettable night of charmingly quick-witted songs, hilarious antics and heart-felt storytelling.
“The content and witty presentation of each original waiata is what makes this performance so memorable and unique." - Theatrescenes
