Zodiac is a dance film installation and activation directed by Cat Ruka featuring South Auckland vogue performance collective, COVEN. The installation incites the celestial nature of our bodies, reconnecting people to their ancestor star constellations, particularly Taurus, in which the Matariki stars reside. COVEN embraces the traditional kaupapa of Matariki, which invites everyone to reflect on the cycle of death and renewal, and to enter through a magical doorway toward divine wisdom.
