He Kura Kōrero - The Gift of Speech

“Ko te reo kia tika, ko te reo kia rere, ko te reo kia Māori!”

The love of language. The power of words to change our lives and connect us to stories. The courage to face our fears and learn from the challenge is at the heart of He Kura Kōrero.

Kaiarahi is fun, bright and strong… but sometimes struggles with being brave. Join Kaiarahi’s adventure to find the courage to speak Te Reo Māori, be a part of the exciting journey and delve into magical worlds through language.

He Kura Kōrero inspires young people to be bold and brave when using Te Reo Māori in their everyday life, whether they know a little or a lot.

He Kura Kōrero is a new bi-lingual tale of wonder and delight from the same creative team that brought you Māui me Te Rā, Matariki- The little eyes in the sky and Matatihi- Maia’s journey of Bravery. This stunning performance explores Te Reo Māori through live music, puppetry, Kapa haka, song, and storytelling.

The Court Theatre will tour He Kura Kōrero to Canterbury primary schools from 21 May 2017 – 22 June 2018. Performances at 9.30am and 2pm Monday-Friday. Tickets are $5.00 (inclusive of GST) per child (no charge for teachers) and a minimum booking of 100 children is needed.
