0.5hr to 1.5hrs Activity - (suitable for 10 – 1500 guests - Indoors or Outdoors)
This traditional and ancient Maori Tribal dance acts as a powerful conference energiser, or as a teambuilding activity. It brings people together and gives them a unique shared experience. Your delegates enter the room and all seems well, the doors shut behind the last guests and then they hear the roar of ‘the call’… the loud and exciting tribal sound of the lead tribesman. The tribesmen then perform the overwhelmingly powerful ‘HAKA’ to the delight (and surprise) of your guests.
…A message of the soul expressed by words and posture…
Within moments of our team finishing their demonstration, we have everyone ready to go and take them on a whirlwind energiser, where they will learn and perform the HAKA as one unified team. Building towards a powerful finale performance, the group will go head to head in a bit of healthy tribal competition. Then the battle for tribal supremacy is won as we come together as one tribe for the ultimate HAKA.
…You will feel the power…
For the ultimate surprise, we will take the MD/CEO and dress him/her in their own ALL BLACK rugby strip (complete with Maori face paint) and have them perform on stage during the big finale. The HAKA is a composition played by many instruments. Hands, feet, legs, body, voice, tongue and eyes all play their part in blending together to convey in their fullness the challenge, welcome, exultation, defiance or contempt of the words. It is disciplined, yet emotional. More than any other aspect of Maori culture, this complex dance is an expression of the passion, vigour and identity of the team. It is at its best, truly a message of the soul expressed by words and posture.
