A main-bill (Taumata) Atamira work by Te Rarawa/Ngati Porou choreographer Jack Gray. Mitimiti premiered in Auckland in 2015.
Somewhere in the dunes, and on the edges of bloodied dreams, we are called to enter a new realm. The bones of yourself, of an ancestor, a whale, a house are literally fleshed out in a unique multi-level gallery-style presentation.
An invitation to move amongst the transformed theatre space, immersed in film, light, reflection and sound, the poetic design layering a provocation to simply ‘be the place’.
Mitimiti is the departure point to disrupt, reconfigure, and invoke.
"...I celebrate the ceremony of Mitimiti that encouraged my living within it. It is collaborative, and its many spaces that exist outside the tangible hour of the performance extend to indigenous and non-indigenous communities in local, international and cyber spaces".
