Tūātea, by Louise Potiki Bryant, featuring dancer Bianca Hyslop, with music by Paddy Free and taonga pūoro by Horomona Horo, is inspired by Hinemoana, the atua wahine of the moana. Tūātea explores the power of the huge breaking waves of an oceanic storm and the profound calm at the lowest depths of the ocean, even when the surface of the moana is at its most turbulent.
