Maori Stick & Poi Performance
Ti Rakau Overview
TI RAKAU is a fun and unique energiser!
Drawing on Maori stick games from years gone by that were used to prepare young warriors for battle, this activity will have your delegates performing in a synchronised display of baton control and timing in no time!
Since the early 1900s these stick games have been presented as a musical performance which involves choreographed throwing and catching of batons to the rhythm of a traditional Maori folk song.
We offer the option to integrate poi choreography into the programme
This unique package can be combined seamlessly with the Haka to create a mesmerising grand finale!
