Presented by Arts House.

Organic, electrifying and utterly immersive, Australian/Maori artist Victoria Hunt presents a richly detailed, viscerally realised and large-scale work exploring mythology, cosmology and traditional wisdom in Tangi Wai, The Cry of Water.

Merging installation, theatre and dance, audiences are transported to the Maori realm of spirits Te Arai, an arduous passage at the precipice of human existence and the afterlife. Here, messengers from the past, bodies abandoned by spirit and urged by unknown forces,transform mythology into flesh and bone.

Hunt’s breakthrough ensemble piece is a powerful embodiment of female authority, ceremony and protest that works to decolonise our thoughts and beliefs, reinstating the power of indigenous creativity through Pacific, Asian and Western dance practice.

A multidisciplinary team of artists craft an exquisitely layered, hypnotic composition of light, sound, movement, image and incantation – a forceful communion with the forgotten and the feared.
