This paper takes the form of a report on an artistic project [a Māori Bacchae] and the task I have been given bring matauranga Maori into mainstream tertiary teaching of our department, of performing and screen arts at Unitec. The two are connected in that I wish, through the artistic project to learn more about, and find a way to expose our mainstream students to Maori knowledge and ways of learning. [...] My artistic question of our work is: Does the stylization and power of Maori performance and aesthetics release principles of Aristotle’s poetics and embedded dramatic themes from within Greek tragedy?
