Te Tairāwhiti Arts festival is proud to present Silo Theatre’s MAURI TAU written and directed by Scotty Cotter.

MAURI TAU is a unique storytelling experience that weaves together the magic of theatre, your whakapapa to the stars and nature. This guided experience immerses you – the listener, in a playful and reflective Sound Play alongside Te Kāhui o Matariki (the star cluster of Matariki).

Writer, director Scotty Cotter collaborates with sound designers Fran Kora and Matt Eller to celebrate and usher in the Māori new year, inviting you to reconnect to your own mauri (life force, essence).

How will it work?

Mauri Tau can be listened to from anywhere, but for this special offering at Te Tairāwhiti Arts Festival we will be hosing 2 sessions at Te Poho-o-Rawiri Marae where this piece of work will play through a PA system. It will take approximately 50-55 minutes long. All you need to bring is yourself and your ticket!
