Reflection On The Production
What is the storyline of your production?
The storyline of the production is a Maori Legend. The main characters Are Aoraki - Latham, Tu - Patrick, Papa earth mother - Lavinia, Rangi Sky Father - Haliano and The narrator - Angel. We used flax, tussock grass , fish hats and most importantly the waka for the Aoraki and his brothers. Here is the beginning of the maori legend. Rangi sky father and papa earth mother decided to send their four sons to look at the new earth Before the earth ended. Rangi Sky father handed the waka to Aoraki and his brothers. They went sailing day and night and saw no land. Aoraki was flung onto one of the rocks and his brothers scrambled on top of the waka. The waka turned into a long piece of land. Aoraki and his borthers turned old their hair turned white and the skin hardned up into stone. Aoraki was the highest mountain and his brothers were smaller mountains around him. My role was a fish. I need to where a fish hat and fish gloves.
