Atamira presents our first foray into the world of Virtual Reality (VR) which is a simulated experience that can be similar to or completely different from the real world. Individual headsets provide the perfect platform for an innovative choreographic and digital interpretation of TOMO, a work that first premiered in 2019 at Tempo Festival.
With shifting architecture TOMO interprets the proverbial heart of three wāhine travelling through Te Ao Kikokiko (the land of the living). A battle between self and the source begins when one lost and lonely wairua enters their world.
Performers: Abbie Rogers, Bianca Hyslop, Cory-Toalei Roycroft, Madison Tumataroa, and Sean MacDonald.
Enjoy this presentation as part of the KAHA - Tripleboost Experience:
KAHA – Tripleboost offers audiences three ways to connect with Atamira. Esteemed dance visionary Sean MacDonald leads the charge opening the stage presentation with a solo performance, painting a self-portrait through physical movement. This is followed by KAHA - five short premiere dance pieces, episodic in nature, by young Māori choreographic and dance collaborators. Meanwhile downstairs in Vault, over 2 sessions from 6-7pm, limited audiences can immerse themselves in the world of the celebrated dance work TOMO for an all-new Virtual Reality film experience.
