Atamira Dance Company’s newest work is delving back into what the name ‘Atamira’ represents in contemporary, historical and future society.
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, investigating themes of death, aloneness, time, Maori culture, ageing and sexuality.
An immersive dance theatre event, experiencing the structure, concept, visual, sound, physical, history, and now of what an ‘Atamira’ is.
Choreographed by Kelly Nash
Performers; Nancy Wijohn, Bianca Hyslop, Daniel Cooper, Sean MacDonald, Milly Kimberly Grant plus more.
*Performance may contain nudity and sexual themes, suitable for a mature audience.
