Matariki by Ron Te Kawa

16 June 2017 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pm

Ron Te Kawa presents Matariki, a story told through quilts and puppets in the gallery, entry free, no bookings required.

The puppet show explores how the gods Ranginui and Papatuanuku were split apart by their children.

The two gods’ divine children all started life jammed together fighting with their brothers and sisters, but they burst apart from their parents, and each found a part of the natural world to became god of.

Ron Te Kawa shows how Papatuanuku the earth mother was injured by her children’s actions, and how she was healed by the seven Matariki stars.
