Atamira Dance Company presents MOKO

Atamira Dance Company is delighted to announce:
MOKO

Inspired by the traditional Maori art of body tattooing, MOKO is a conceptual dance performance that is spurred by the enticement of mana (spiritual power) where the patterns of Ta Moko explode, both emotionally and literally, onto the stage in new and exciting three-dimensional forms.

MOKO, Atamira Dance Company’s newest full-length work, takes audiences on an unforgettable journey. A showcase of fashion, form and force, MOKO marks a powerful new direction for the company. With costumes by avant-garde fashion house WORLD, plus an immersive sound and light set that will have audiences at the edge of their seats, Atamira looks set to own the indigenous dance space. Unmissable.

Premieres Thursday April 10, 2014
SkyCity Theatre, Auckland
Tickets on sale now via iticket.co.nz

Atamira Dance Company has collaborated with WORLD, M.A.C. Cosmetics and Ryder Hairdressing on this production.

Creative Team: Artistic Director & Choreographer: Moss Patterson | Assistant Choreographer: Kelly Nash. | Dancers: Daniel Cooper, Mark Bonnington, Andrew Miller, Nancy Wijohn, Bianca Hyslop & Gabrielle Thomas | Set Design: Robin Rawstorne | AV Design: Dan Mace | Sound Design: Peter Hobbs | Lighting Design: Jeremy Fern | Costumes: WORLD & Gemma White

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
