Atamira Dance Company


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”

An immersive dance theatre event, experiencing the structure, concept, visual, sound, physical, history, and now of what an ‘Atamira’ is.
