Kai Kaha - Warrior Within with Tony Mason

COMMENTS FROM SCHOOLS

"I have been in schools for over 30 years and been part of many, many performances in that time. Never have I been lucky enough to have experienced a show like yours. Follow up workshops were fantastic. What more can I say? You were absolutely brilliant!"

Wilmington PS, VIC

"Action packed!! Children adored Tony. Your performance was the most exciting and entertaining performance I have seen and I'm sure it is the same for the students. Every school should see this performance, It's excellent!"

"It takes skill to present a show which appeals to K-7 both boys and girls. You achieved this, well done! They were still 'buzzing' about it days later."

Mana - The Spirit of Polynesia

performed by Tony Mason

THE PERFORMER

Tony Mason has spent his life surrounded by traditional Polynesian heritage where he was exposed to the deep and creative environment of the songs, chants and rhythms of Polynesia. He has been involved with cultural groups and performed in competitions of Maori culture throughout New Zealand. Through his passion for dance and music, and his enjoyment of Polynesian culture, Tony wishes to share with his audience an awareness and the richness of other cultures.

THE PERFORMANCE

Lose yourself in the chant of the Haka, the skill of the Poi and be amazed at the entwining of body through 7 separate hoops! Tony takes the students on an adventure in which he performs both contemporary and traditional dance, and in a fun, energetic, yet educational way, he teaches students about self worth, finding 'the Haka within you', while also promoting an elimination of bullying through acceptance and understanding of differences.

Through his school performances over many years throughout Australia and New Zealand Tony has demonstrated an ability to entertain and educate in a delightful way, fostering an appreciation of other cultures which in turn helps his audiences to accept and embrace the multi cultural country in which we live.
