Four friends set off into the forest on a mid-winter camping adventure with the hope of discovering the Matariki star cluster in the night sky. As they journey deeper and deeper, the sounds of city life far away, they start to hear WAIATA O TE WAO – the song of the forest. With the tent set up, firewood collected and sleeping bags unpacked, they await nightfall…

So gather up the whānau and join us on a mid-winter journey as we weave together strands of myth, music, song and storytelling into a magical, interactive online experience made for the entire family.
