Atamira Dance Company’s newest full-length work is delving back into what the name ‘Atamira’ represents in contemporary, historical and future society.
The literal meaning of “atamira” is “stage” and another meaning of the word is “platform for the dead body and the process of caring for those who have died”.
This new work will use the full space of the massive 'Shed 1' located at Corban Estate Arts Centre in Henderson, Auckland, and investigate themes of death, aloneness, time, Māori culture, ageing and sexuality.
An immersive dance theatre event, experiencing the structure, concept, visual, sound, physical, history, and now of what an ‘Atamira’ is.
Choreographed by Kelly Nash
