Kapa Haka Tale, fuses the native Maori performing art, kapa haka, with contemporary dance, and brings to life the well-known enchanting Maori tale Hinemoa and Tutanekai. Transporting spectators to a magical and atmospheric world, Kapa Haka Tale captivates audiences through powerful and mesmerising choreography, ethereal digital creatures, and an awe-inspiring set, rich with colour, nature and beautiful tribal Maori art. Through the complementary use of innovative mobile digital technology the audience are immersed in Maori culture like never before as they are exposed to the legend, the art-form and digital Taniwha (supernatural creatures) puppetry and a glistening lake. Hairs on the back of your neck will be standing as the famous New Zealand love song Pokarekare Ana, and fierce Haka are performed. Kapa haka is the collective performing arts of indigenous Maori people of New Zealand, a showcase of their heritage and cultural identity through song and dance. A Kapa haka performance involves choral singing, dance and movements associated in the hand-to-hand combat. The Haka is a traditional ancestral war cry, dance or challenge from the indigenous Maori people of New Zealand. It is a posture dance performed by a group, with vigorous movements and stamping of the feet with rhythmically shouted accompaniment. The New Zealand rugby team's practice of performing a Haka before their matches has made the dance more widely known around the world.
