Description (from venue/promoter's website):
"I am the house and the house is me. I dance the history of the house and the house reveals my history."
Maori dance artist Victoria Hunt explores the cultural and physical journey of Hinemihi, a traditional Maori meeting house that withstood a cataclysmic volcanic eruption, then was brought to Clandon Park in Surrey. Hinemihi's story is interwoven with Hunt's own journey of finding her family, reconnecting with her culture and learning from land, ancestors and peers. Copper Promises is a lament, a pilgrimage, and a protest for ancestral treasures - Taonga.
"A stunning production...It is as if she is channelling the spirits of her ancestors and the very land they come from"
- Sydney Morning Herald
This performance is a UK premiere

There will be a post-show discussion with the company on Fri 25 Oct
