Join us for a multi-disciplinary arts spectacle weaving together stories of New Zealand’s sacred rivers and China’s famous Yellow River.

A young man Te Uru Rangi, descended from the people of New Zealand’s Tongariro River in the central North Island, leaves his sacred homeland to work on a major river damming project on the Yellow River in northern China. He becomes obsessed with taming the Yellow River, forgetting to honour the ancient river spirit. His physical form begins to pass between realms.

Te Uru Rangi’s wairua is caught wandering in a mystical torrent, the kaitiaki / spirit guardian of the Tongariro River must bring him home but the river spirits battle for power and control. Will the spirit of Te Uru Rangi find its way home to Aotearoa?

Told through contemporary dance and music; the rhythm of kapa haka and the Chinese martial art of Tai Chi. The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, an 80-strong choir of young artists from schools and communities across Auckland and Atamira Dance Company bring you another amazing collaboration.

Presented in association with Auckland Arts Festival.
