As three children play by the ocean a large conch shell starts to whisper stories of the sea. Fluorescent fish float under a starry sky and a magical character appears in a rickety boat to tell his fishy tale.

Look closely at where the sky meets the sea and you might see something surprising! In a fusion of song, dance, puppets, te reo Māori and English, Songs of the Sea Waiata O Te Moana unfolds the mysteries and myths of where the first fish came from. From Ra and Marama (Sun and Moon) to Ite Ika o te Rangi (the Milky Way), colourful puppets and catchy music weave together four stories of the deep.

Beautiful, playful and a joy to watch this play will strike chords of wonder in younger audiences. Suitable for ages 2+.
