Atamira Dance Company's newest full-length work is delving back
into what the name 'Atamira' represents in contemporary, historical
and future society.
Choreographed by Kelly Nash, 'Atamira' is a platform to remember
those that have passed, our closeness to our own imminent death,
and a reminder of the importance of people, relationships and
We are running our first ever Boosted campaign with the goal to
raise $12,000NZ to enable employment of up to three emerging Maori
dancers for five weeks full-time work leading up to the premiere of
'Atamira' - 13 December, 2017.
Engaging these young dancers in the creative process is an
important part of Kelly's overall creative vision.
We are inspired to whakamana the journey of Imogen Tapara, Rosie
Tapsell and Manuel Solomon to be immersed in this intensive
creative process under the direction of Kelly and alongside
established Atamira dancers. This opportunity will be an incredible
and enriching experience that will assist in the growth of our
talented rangatahi, and enable them to receive a living wage
during their involvement.
The generous support of Creative New Zealand allows us to fund
our newest full-length work, however we need the support of our
whole community to bring these young dancers into the process, and
to fully realise the creative vision of choreographer, Kelly
Please boost this project!
