Mauri Tau is a unique storytelling experience that weaves together the magic of theatre, your whakapapa to the stars and nature. This guided experience immerses you - the listener, in a playful and reflective Sound Play alongside Te Kāhui o Matariki (the star cluster of Matariki).

Writer, director Scotty Cotter collaborates with sound designers Fran Kora and Matt Eller to celebrate and usher in the Māori new year, inviting you to reconnect to your own mauri (life force, essence).

Enjoy from the comfort of your own home or head out for a walk in your neighbourhood streets, park or maunga. Mauri Tau is an audio play that encourages personal introspection and was created to be listened to at dusk or dawn. Reflections on loss or grief are considered in this audio-play.

How will it work?

Mauri Tau is an audio-play that you access online through a smartphone device on your headphones. When you purchase a ticket, you will need to select a session time to listen to the story, it will take approximately 50-55 minutes to complete. When you purchase your admission, you will be provided with a unique access link and further instructions.

Mauri Tau can be listened to from anywhere, but for the full immersive experience, we recommend planning a hikoi (walk) underneath the open sky to connect with your outdoor environment. If you don’t have headphones, you could choose to play the sound through a set of speakers.

On the date of your session time, you’ll need to have your phone/other device ready (fully charged) with wifi or mobile data connectivity, click on the unique access link sent to you via email, put your headphones on and press play. Please make sure you have reliable cellular connectivity/coverage in your location in order to successfully play the sound file.
