Toro Pikopiko Puppets - Mighty Maui

A fun musical using Flatso puppets... 

On Wednesday we saw a puppet musical written and performed by Jeffrey Addison and Whaitaima Te Whare.  The show weaves together eight of Maui Tikitiki's most daring deeds and features Flatso puppets.  

Then we had a session of Numba Haka.  Based on traditional Māori learning through ako-a-tinana, Numba Haka uses the body, live rhythms and knowledge of numeracy to create a fun multi-lingual dance that everybody in the audience could take part in.

TORO PIKOPIKO PUPPETS are celebrating their twentieth year of creating maori themed entertainment for children.
