An Evening With Witi Ihimaera & Kingsley Spargo

31 October 2020 | WORD Christchurch Spring Festival

Join one of Aotearoa’s master storytellers, Witi Ihimaera, for a very special evening of myths and music. His new book, Navigating the Stars, is a spellbinding and provocative retelling of traditional Maori myths for the twenty-first century. From Hawaiki to Aotearoa, the ancient navigators brought their myths, while looking to the stars — bright with gods, ancestors and stories — to guide the way.

Telling tales from the book and from his latest memoir Native Son, the sequel to his award-winning Māori Boy, Ihimaera will be accompanied by sound artist and musical polymath Kingsley Spargo. This will be a very special evening indeed.
