Hurihuri | Movement of The Human (NZ)
Traditional Pacific performance collides with urban street culture in a show fizzing with energy, magic and heart.
See skateboarders, kapa haka and poi dancers perform against a live soundscape of drums, electronic loops and traditional Maori instruments, taonga pūoro.
The whirling, revolution of motion transforms into a breathtaking aerial duet starring award winning integrated artist Rodney Bell. This is the wheelchair as you've never seen it, repurposed as an instrument, a sculptural element and an inspiration for hip hop Hurihuri is directed by Malia Johnston, with live music by Tom Scrase.
