Music, Movement, and Stories: Three parts of one whole: Onepū – Christchurch Arts Festival 2019

Onepū is on Friday 2 August 7pm at the James Hay Theatre in the Town Hall. It is presented by the Atamira dance company, and uses sound, movement, light and dance to tell the story of atua wahine / Māori female deities, as told in traditional Kāi Tahu stories. A combination of the traditional and the modern, this work from Louise Potiki Bryant (Kāi Tahu, Waitaha, Kāti Mamoe), Ariana Tikao (Kāi Tahu) and others is sure to be a magical experience.
