Te Rereka - The Flight is a forty-five-minute interactive acoustic rock musical featuring 80 ‘Flatsie’ puppets inspired from ancient cave drawings around the Timaru district.
The show re-tells a Kāi Tahu legend about a bird woman called Pourakahua and her epic flight to Aotearoa with the aid of Matariki stars and migrating whales. Pourakahua flies from cave to cave, meeting a host of colourful characters including bats, creepy crawlies, moa, Pouakai eagles and human bird hunters, all played by members of the audience.
