Lemi Ponifasio is one of the most original and controversial choreographers in the world today, with a reputation founded on his powerful and challenging approach to the contemporary theatre. With his company MAU, Lemi Ponifasio presents his latest work Tempest: Without a Body, first premiered at the Vienna Festival, Austria and since presented through Europe and in London.

Tempest is a series of works responding to the escalation of state powers and unlawful detention in the post 9/11 world. A frighteningly beautiful statement featuring Ahmed Zaoui and Tuhoe activist Tame Iti.

Through the eyes of Paul Klee’s Angelus Novus and Giorgio Agamben’s Sacred Man, Lemi Ponifasio reflects on the post 9/11-world. An angel with a broken body, wings crumpled and too small for flight, wanders on the landscape of blood and destruction. MAU, in their dance style of ceremonial ecstasy, emerge from the shadows to pray on the ruin of history.

“Lights, reverberation - a night of Ponifasio genius” Bernadette Rae, NZ Herald, March 2009.

“An impressive choreographic tour-de-force” Le Soir, Belgium 2008.
