New Zealand dance troupe performs at MontBleu Friday

Provided to the TribuneThe Kahurangi dance troupe from New Zealand will perform at 7 p.m. Friday at the MontBleu Theater.

Tahoe Arts Project is presenting Kahurangi, Maori Dance Theater of New Zealand at 7 p.m. Friday at the MontBleu Theater.

Admission is $10 for adults and $5 for children and seniors. Tickets will go on sale at 6 p.m. and doors open at 6:30 p.m.

Kahurangi (meaning cloak from heaven) was formed to provide cultural, recreational, educational and employment opportunities for graduates of Takitimu Performing Arts School, based in Hastings, New Zealand, which has established itself as a pioneer in the field of Maori Performing Arts and was the first tertiary institution to offer a full-time undergraduate degree in Maori performing arts.

Since 1985, Kahurangi has presented more than 5,000 performances in New Zealand, Australia, China, Singapore, Mexico, India and Malaysia along with the United States and Canada.

In order to provide an in-depth learning experience for its members, Kahurangi performers travel to North America on a nine-month tour. The North American ensemble is self sufficient and survives on performance fees earned from performances, workshops and residencies.

Sponsored by Tahoe Arts Project, Kahurangi performed for more than 5,000 K-12th grade students in the local schools this week.
