      This is the trailer for the choreographic work 'TAONGA, dust, water, wind' presented by ATAMIRA DANCE COMPANY and choreographed by LOUISE POTIKI BRYANT. (video design by Louise Potiki Bryant). "Did the message come to her on the wings of a fantail or the cry of an owl?" 'TAONGA, dust, water, wind' is a poetic dance experience inspired by the true life story of Rona Williamson, a kuia of Ngai Tahu whanui. In 'TAONGA, dust, water, wind', young Rona, growing up in the care of her Great-Aunt in the small seaside town of Kaka Point, enters a magical landscape where bodies inhabit a world of seaweed and stone, where a fantail echoes death, and the moon guides the young girl and her Aunt through the struggles and phases of their lifes. With bush clad hills to its back and the Southern Pacific Ocean spread out in front, Kaka Point is a magical place to live. Set in 1934, the childhood memories of choreographer Potiki-Bryant's Aunty Rona, are brought to life. Atamira's reputation for powerful and poignant choreography will be on show with an internationally experienced ensemble. Combining a live score by taonga puoro (traditional Maori instruments) expert Richard Nunns, this performance provides a tantalising journey to an old way of life. Choreographer and Video Designer: Louise Potiki Bryant, Composer: Paddy Free, Taonga Puoro & Live Music: Richard Nunns, Lighting Designer: Vanda Karolczak, Costume Designer: Kirsten Kemp. Dancers: Jack Gray, Justine Hohaia, Maaka Pepene, Gabrielle Thomas, Bianca Hyslop, Mark Bonnington
