Kahurangi Maori Dance Theatre perform Monday
Carson City Library will host Kahurangi, a Maori dance group from New Zealand, at 6 p.m. Monday, May 9, library auditorium.
Kahurangi, translates into “Cloak from Heaven.”
The company has appeared in many festivals, conferences, public and private schools presenting unique cultural performances, demonstrations, lectures and workshops relating to the Maori and Polynesian Cultures and ways of life.
A performance by Kahurangi brings to life the ihi or life force of the Maori, through the songs and dances that are part of the history and fabric of Maori life. They bridge the past and the present with genealogical chants, martial arts techniques, powerful songs and pride in being Maori. Each presentation engrosses and excites the audience and imparts a wealth of cultural and tribal knowledge to foster a greater understanding of a very unique and exciting indigenous culture.
The Carson City Library is located at Roop and Washington streets. Regular hours are 10 a.m.-8 p.m. Monday-Thursday and 10 a.m.-6 p.m. Friday and Saturday.
