MITIMITI KAU ANA I NGA TOENGA A TE MORE
Mitimiti rests somewhere in the dunes and on the edges of bloodied dreams, calling us to enter a new realm.
The bones of yourself, of an ancestor, a whale, a house literally become fleshed out by multiple design and movement innovations.
Bursting through the veil of stage to audience — film installation, live kapa haka, surround sound, Atamira dancers and international special guests — Mitimiti unveils secrets of the Atamira (platform) in a unique multi-level gallery-style.
Plunging bravely into the Te Rarawa lineage of choreographer Jack Gray, Mitimiti is the departure point to disrupt, reconfigure, and invoke – charging the theatre space with collective resonance.
“[Mitimiti] is at once dark and full of critique, ironic and hilarious, and deeply personal”.
