Richard Nunns, the acclaimed musician who specialises in tra- ditional Maori instruments, will join performance group Te Oro Haa in breathing life into the cele- bration of the new year and the memories of the past. Te Oro Haa, which invokes the breath'', comprises play- wright Donna McLeod and musicians Gaynor Rikihana, Maihi Barber and Peter Prestel. Donna said the 45-minute per- formance was Maori poetic theatre with a synchronicity of sound''. The show is taking place on the mahau (porch) of the marae, and is the first stop of the group's mahau tour, which will also visit Whakatu marae in Nel- son and Onetahua marae in Golden Bay. Donna advised the audience to wrap up warmly for the perform- ance under the stars, although there will be braziers burning and if it is raining, it will be moved into the adjacent whare kai. She said refreshments would be available for purchase afterwards. Entry to the show is by koha. Beanies leave organiser beaming Fashion statement: The good-humoured and community-minded staff at Bay Pharmacy keep their heads warm by modelling some of the handcrafted beanies from the Motueka Arts Council's Make A Beanie competition they are displaying in their High St window.

Photo: ALASTAIR PAULIN By ALASTAIR PAULIN If a cold snap hits this week, the staff of Bay Pharmacy in Motueka won't have to go far to find their winter woollies. In their front window they are displaying some of the woollen beanies created by knitters from all over the region in the Motueka Arts Council's Make a Beanie competition. Run under the umbrella of the Festival of Lights, the competition drew 44 entries, a turn out that left organiser Shirley Frater over the moon''. Shirley found her entrants mostly through spinners and knit- ters groups, with entries from Motueka to Mapua to Stoke. The judges, Operation Cover- Up coordinator Faith Wells and fabric artist Liz Hofmann, were particularly impressed by the work of Stoke's Shirley Melville, who won all three categories she entered: most colourful (seen above on Vanessa), children's and rustic. Her work is immaculate and it has good design'', said Shirley. It just shows you the skills that are mostly hidden away at home.'' The beanies are also being dis- played in the High St windows of Abel Tasman Outdoors (story book characters); Amcal (street smart); Whitwell's Menswear (rustic and traditional); Potters' Patch (children's) and the Hospice Shop (recycled). Shirley said she liked to think that people would stroll High St and take in the creativity on dis- play along with the festive lights in shop windows as part of the Festival of Lights. The beanies will be in windows until the end of Monday. And then? Winter's not over yet so people will have a chance to wear them,'' Shirley said. Other winners: Story book character, Trish Hall; street smart, Mary Furness Weir; recycled, Jane Organ; traditional, Sarah Douglas; most innovative, Sali Crocker; judges' award, Yvonne Hammond; fun to see, Shirley Wallace.
