I am the house and the house is me. I dance the history of the house and the house reveals my history.

Copper Promises is a new solo dance work by Victoria Hunt exploring the cultural and physical journey of Hinemihi: a female ancestor and a ceremonial space connected with Hunt’s Maori cultural heritage. Hinemihi’s story is interwoven with Hunt’s own journey: of finding family, of reconnecting with her culture and of learning from land, ancestors and peers. with Hunt’s extended family and other artists, Copper Promises creates distinctive movement and imagery, merging feeling and gesture as they echo across landscape and through time. It is a lament, a pilgrimage, a protest for ancestral treasures – Taonga.
