Atamira Dance Company's newest full-length work is delving back into what the name 'Atamira' represents in contemporary, historical and future society. Choreographed by Kelly Nash, 'Atamira' is a platform to remember those that have passed, our closeness to our own imminent death, and a reminder of the importance of people, relationships and life. 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 Corbans Shed 1, and investigates themes of death, aloneness, Maori culture, ageing and sexuality. An immersive dance theatre event, experiencing the structure, concept, and sound of what ‘Atamira’ is.
Performers; Nancy Wijohn, Bianca Hyslop, Daniel Cooper, Sean MacDonald, Brydie Colquhoun, Milly Kimberly Grant + plus more pending results of boosted crowdfunding campaign to fund additional dancers.
