Presented by Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts, Taki Rua Productions and te Rākau Hua O Te Wao Tapu Trust
After five weeks of deep creative exploration of self, culture and identity, our rangatira taiohi (young leaders) share with you their ideas, dreams and experiences in a large-scale, electrifying performance of movement and storytelling that will leave you reflective and inspired.
Through performing arts, founded in tikanga Māori, Te Ahu Taiohi uplifts the voices of the leaders of Aotearoa nō Porirua.
Haere mai and share in this kaupapa, as our rangatahi provide you with a window into their experiences and encourage you to reflect on their realities, provoking a shift in our collective landscape. Rangatahi are the present. Join us as they carve out our future.

Te ahunga o tō tātou hunga taiohi, ngā rangatira mō āpōpō, ō rātou hiahia, ō rātou moemoeā.
Ko tēnei whakaaturanga te kaiwhakaputa i ēnā whakaaro o te hunga taiohi, mā te toi whakaari, mā te kanikani, mā te kapa haka anō hoki me ētehi atu mahi whakangahau. Haere mai, kia rongo ai koe i te reka o ngā mahi, i te ātaahua o ngā whakaaro, o tēnei hunga taiohi e tārei nei i te ara ki te anamata.
