    Drawing inspiration from Māori rock art depictions of bird people at the Maerewhenua site in Otago, whānau manuscripts of Tikao and kōrero from Kāi Tahu Whānui, Bird Like Men is a contemplation on migration and travel and the deeply embedded desire that draws us to return to our spiritual homelands.

    This multimedia performance brings together the artistry of Ariana Tikao, Ruby Solly, Alistair Fraser, and Phil Boniface with visual artist, Louise Pōtiki Bryant, weaving together sound worlds from both te ao Māori and te ao Pākehā. Tararua’s evocative music combines taonga pūoro, waiata, karakia, and pūrākau (story) with a strong southern Māori influence, partnered with the western instrumental elements of the cello and double bass.
