MOKO - In Rehearsal

Atamira Dance Company  Aotearoa / New Zealand

Fluid, kinetic and driving, Moko is a dynamic dance work inspired by the ancient art form of tā moko.

Moko is a metaphor for becoming whole. The changing nature of self identity is explored as bodies are twisted and stretched transforming the space visually using elastic rope, live feed video, and a buzzing electronic sound score.

Moko ignites the space taking the art form of moko on a spiraling never ending choreographic journey.

Directly following the dance, choreographer Moss Patterson and renowned tā moko artist Derek Lardelli will talk about the work.

Post-show talk: Sat 23 Mar
