Atamira join Manukau Festival of Arts with a poetic dance experience inspired by the true life story of Rona Williamson, a kuia of Ngai Tahu whanui.

Young Rona is growing up in the care of her great aunt in the small seaside town of Kaka Point, enters a magical landscape where bodies inhabit a world of seaweed and stone, where a fantail echoes death, and the moon guides the young girl and her aunt through the struggles and phase of their lives.

Combining a live score by taonga puoro (traditional Maori instruments) expert Richard Nunns and with Atamira's reputation for poginant and powerful choreography, Taonga provides a tantalizing journey to an old way of life.

(This event is also part of Tempo: NZ Festival of Dance)
