“Wherever we work, no matter what we do, we must not resist that sudden urge to break into interpretative dance.”
That’s the statement that inspired Arts Laureate Ross McCormack to create this playful site-specific, world premiere dance work.
From the visitor hosts to the security team, the people who run the iconic Tāmaki Paenga Hira Auckland War Memorial Museum offer rabbit holes of possibility.
You never know who might be leading you on a whimsical journey and where they may take you. The majestic nature of the Museum’s architecture, the relics that are housed within, and the tireless efforts of those behind-the-scenes open up enchanting portholes of imagination to explore. McCormack masterfully uses his signature elements of physical theatre and comedy interwoven with his iconic style of movement to reveal some irresistible secrets of the human experience.
Featuring NZDC performers Carl Tolentino, Chrissy Kokiri, Katie Rudd, Ngaere Jenkins, Kosta Bogoievski, and Katrina Bastian.
Suitable for ages 8+
Please note that this is a processional show with no seating
