Atamira Dance Company

Atamira Dance Company (Aotearoa/New Zealand)

Audiences can experience the freshest Māori contemporary dance at Auckland Arts Festival 2013 by joining Atamira Dance Company for HOU 2013 - Choreographic Development Season. In HOU 2013, three of the country’s best Māori contemporary choreographers will thrill audiences with the ihi, wehi and wana (energy, power and awe) of contemporary dance theatre at this special event at Henderson’s Corban Estate Arts Centre. Auckland Arts Festival 2013 is helping to bring Atamira’s growing annual creative development programme, Hou (new), to the widest possible audience.

In Mahi Waewae, Australian-based, New Zealand born dance artist Nancy Wijohn will explore a new choreographic idea - interpreting the physical and psychological elements of sport, Māori warfare and athletic ability through dance.

Cathy Livermore’s new work He Maunga: He Kohatu plants itself within a Māori world view and is a call to remember and to take action - for all Māori to stand as kaitiaki (guardians) and protect the land, Papatuanuku, from pollution and policies that threaten environmental well-being and connection.

Te Atatu Penninsula-born choreographer, and founding Atamira member, Jack Gray will continue his provocative theatrical exploration of relationships to pepeha - where and how we identify ourselves - in the next chapter of his full-length work Mitimiti.

A creative Q & A session follows the performances where you can wise-up about the work and learn about the choreographic process.
