The past, present and future abruptly intersect in multi-disciplinary performance Pōhutu, a rich synthesis of image, object, movement, and sound.
At the age of 88 Bianca's grandmother now has Alzheimers. Pōhutu draws parallels between a kuia's shapeshifting mind and the restlessness of her whenua 'Te Whakarewarewatanga-o-te-ope-taua-a-Wahiao, Rotorua'. Made from the echoes of lived experiences, of multi-layered realities and of re-imaginings, Pōhutu is a visceral experience not to be missed.
Pōhutu is created by visionary Aotearoa artists, choreographer Bianca Hyslop (Atamira Dance Company) and artist Rowan Pierce (Movement of the Human).
