This August we are extremely thrilled to be offering our inaugural Choreographic Lab with Charles Koroneho!
ABOUT THE CHOREOGRAPHIC LAB
Drawing on his work with the visionary performance platform Te Toki Haruru, International Maori Artist Charles Koroneho will facilitate the Choreographic Lab and share his experience in indigenous choreography, direction and performance devising. Participants will experience a daily body practice consisting of specific exercises, improvisation and performance theory from Dance, Body Weather and Performance Art. Drawing together these distinct influences the Choreographic Lab will explore indigenous choreography and performance devising by utilizing the concept of the Wakahuia. Highly prized and admired for their artistic beauty by the indigenous people of Aotearoa/New Zealand, Wakahuia are elaborately carved wooden vessels for the storage and protection of precious objects. Our Wakahuia will be re-contextualized as ‘a performance treasure box’; a living archive and vehicle for new creation, research, and critique. New discoveries await the ‘performance treasure box’, from it may emerge future performance projects, new language, and a courageous artistic vision.
