Atamira Dance Company proudly presents TOMO, a tale of wairua told through dance, light and architecture.
With shifting architecture TOMO interprets the proverbial heart of three wāhine travelling through Te Ao Kikokiko (the land of the living). A battle between self and the source begins when one lost and lonely wairua enters their world.
A first full-length work by choreographer Gabrielle Thomas with collaborators Peter Hobbs (music) and Vanda Karolczak (design), TOMO dives between the boundaries of light (Tama Nui Te Ra) and darkness (Te Marama) to evoke a hauntingly spellbinding experience.
Kōrero // There will be an optional pre-show discussion about TOMO with Gabrielle Thomas facilitated by Atamira Dance Company on Thursday 10 October from 6:00-6:15.
