Te Wheke is a work of legacy and succession commemorating the 21 years of creative existence of Atamira Dance Company.
Te Wheke refers to the Octopus, a guardian on the journey from past into future, activating healing in the now. Created in collaboration by 8 leading Māori choreographic practitioners and embodied by 8 dancers, the dimensions of human experience, each symbolised by the tentacles of the mighty Te Wheke, are explored through a Māōri knowledge base.
Atamira Dance Company is the leading creator and presenter of Māori contemporary dance theatre from Aotearoa New Zealand. The work embodies a unique artistic landscape shaped by the cultural identity of our people and their stories. We are driven by choreographic and design excellence in an ever-expanding repertoire of local and cross-cultural dance works.
