Dunedin Arts Festival

6-9 APRIL 2021

Show Information

A bicultural multimedia performance intervention that immerses you in the evolutionary consciousness of the Universe.

Wairua draws on traditional Māori and Western contemporary forms of movement and theatre as a vehicle to re-imagine a symbolic ritualistic narrative.

The performance blends original waiata and taonga pūoro with projections and surreal dark lighting states to create an experiential, intuitive and spiritual journey within, into the primal state of Nothingness.

The performers combine theatre and dance constructs from Māori and Western practice. The physical and incorporeal entwine. Beams of light pierce the dark in intricate patterns, fractal shapes shift and swirl, and time alters in the expanse of space.

Wairua is visceral — it will be felt in your very being.
