Takatāpui by Daley Rangi


“Biting and dark, yet still inviting…Rangi creates an ethereal world of queer joy.”

– Time Out Sydney

An electrifying storm of story and sound.

Armed with only a microphone, a vocal processor, and a killer pair of heels, Māori antidisciplinary artist Daley Rangi holds a solitary flame in a blistering call to action.

Takatāpui shines a light on the shadowy events of one fateful night, grappling with the freedom and violence that arrives with self-expression. Contested memories unspool around the audience – vividly conjured by a compelling combination of visceral lyricism, cavernous soundscapes, disco outbreaks, and macabre humour.

Rangi unearths the complexities of resistance and resilience with welcoming levity and candour, offering transformative storytelling to haunt and to heal.

Daley Rangi is a Māori antidisciplinary artist generating the unpredictable, speaking truth to power and reorienting hierarchies. They’ve made a lot of art, not all of it good, but most of it somewhat interesting. For them, self-biographies are all-at-once discomforting, superfluous, and crucial, in constant dialogue with colonial systems.
