Meremere is a unique autobiographical performance from the critically acclaimed dancer, Rodney Bell (Ngāti Maniapoto).
Collaborating with award-winning company Movement of the Human, Meremere is a work of art where design, AV and lighting combine with storytelling, music, and dance.
Meremere was inspired by Rodney’s extraordinary life. The performance weaves together stories from his life on the streets of San Francisco, performances with acclaimed dance companies, and his homecoming and reconnection with whānau and whenua in Aotearoa New Zealand. This is a compelling and profoundly moving performance that has delighted audiences around New Zealand, winning several awards.
