He Tangata is an unveiling of takatapuitanga. A search for the forgotten taonga of Te Ao Māori. A reminder of oneness. This work dances through the realms of ira Tangata and ira atua, exploring whakapapa and stories of takatapui existence, to remember, mourn and heal from generational trauma. In an act to weave takatapui and Maoritanga back together, He Tangata looks backwards whilst moving forwards as we travel within the past, present and future of Takatapuitanga.
