100 CLOAKS GONE BEFORE DAWN

100Cloaks gone before dawn

Research & Residency

by Victoria Hunt
19 January – 14 February
at Critical Path

‘te aho tapu’; weaving the first row; binding the tangible with the intangible; in the constant flux between night, earth, sky and whakapapa (lineage).

A cloak carries within it the mana (ancestral prestige) of our ancestors and celebrates the interconnections that give life to material forms. This residency will explore the idea of dancing 100 Cloaks, tapping into the ever-shifting relationship between Victoria’s Maori heritage and her Australian-born experience.

The transformative body is the guiding principle emerging from BodyWeather and Butoh sensibilities. Being danced by the space.
