All Ages

At Matariki, we gather together to mark the rising of the Pleides star cluster. This seven star cluster was used for centuries as an important means of navigation across the Southern oceans. In Maori legend, Matariki and her daughters journey across the sky each year to visit their tupuna wahine, Papatūānuku, Mother Earth.

During this visit, each of the stars help Papatūānuku to prepare for the year to come, using their unique qualities or gifts to bring mauri, life force or energy, to her different environments. Whilst spending time with their kuia, grandmother, they also learn new skills and gain new knowledge from her, which they guard and pass on to others.

This will be a special gathering, at the darkest time of the year, for us to express through 5 Rhythms movement and dance, what we have harvested in our lives, at this halfway mark in the calendar year.

It is an opportunity to share our unique gifts with each other, through dance, music, food and song and to sort our seeds of new growth for Spring.

Cost: Earlybird: $190 (if paid by May 25th).
Full Price: $220
Fri only: $25
Schedule: Fri: 7- 9.30pm. Sat 10.30am - 4.30pm and 7pm - 9.30pm; Sun: 10.30am - 4pm.
