“…a tour de force of dance, music and light…” Francesca Horsley, DANZ, 2015

For its inaugural North American tour, this remarkable young company directed by Arts Laureate Shona McCullagh offers up a program as rich and diverse as its South Pacific homeland. The Geography of an Archipelago by Stephen Shropshire is a striking trio set to a powerful, percussive score that includes the haunting sounds of the taonga pourou (Māori traditional instruments); In Transit by Māori multidisciplinary artist Louise Potiki Bryant is a striking reflection on the role of ritual; and, Sigan by Korean choreographer KIM Jae Duk, is a riveting quartet that draws from dual themes of attack and meditation.
