Victoria Hunt's award-winning work fuses mist, choreography, sound and light to explore rituals of belonging, female authority, and cultural inheritance

In Tangi Wai...The Cry of Water, dancer and choreographer Victoria Hunt enlists 12 female dancers to explore Maori cultural protocols around female authority and belongong, and the transformative power of water.

Part installation and part dance-theatre, the work combines mist, image and sound to conjure the spirit realm of Te Arai, and invites audience members into a environment of incantation and ritualistic movement.

This is meditative work designed to transport you – so maybe not one to rush to or fit in between things.
