A festival favourite of cutting-edge dance from choreographers in their prime. Featuring new works by Katie Burton, Felicity Molloy, Tia Reihana and Val Smith.

This Is Ours – Katie Burton ‘This is ours’ is a research performance project. The project investigates a shared exchange between performers and audience. Both performers and audience are valued in the exchange, and feedback is invited throughout. The traditional theatrical space is challenged and perspectives shift. The performers fall, catch, embrace, they create lines, shapes and boxes, and dance really, really, really close to the audience. This Tempo performance is one in a series of research performances that have taken place over 2013. ‘This is ours’ is directed by Katie Burton, and co-created by performers Shanelle Lenehan, Jessie McCall and Georgie Goater. Original sound by Josh Rutter.

Disarm – Felicity Molloy Disarm’s dreamscape stories speak to disconnects between ages; dark and with a feel of ancient Irish (5 generations ago, I came from there!). Strangely elusive faces of women are embedded in backdrop images to denote a sense of watching and being watched. Disarm emerges through a naive child’s imagination filtered by soundscape artist, Josh Rutter’s mix of John Tavener, Sineaid OConnor, Arvo Part and Iarla OLionaird's iconic recording of the vision song, Aisling Gheal.

Mareikura – Tia Reihana There is a gathering of wahine. There is a gathering of kai. What feeds our whanau is the story of me. I am she, and, we are descendants of her. The kete is a now trolley and we are shopping for truth underneath others. This work is inspired by diverse narratives of decolonisation.

Circle in Box – Val Smith This piece mourns the construct of the circle as a ritual space for community transformation. The black box theatre is summoned to test its potential for containing ceremonial experience. What paranormal affects emerge through being present to the circle in the box?
