“Pōhutu is a masterfully crafted performance, a koha not just for Bianca Hyslop’s own whānau, her own grandmother, but one for all audiences who bear witness to it.” - Pantograph Punch

The past, present and future abruptly intersect in multi-disciplinary dance work Pōhutu, a rich synthesis of image, object, movement, and sound. Pōhutu is an ode to the human experience navigating the ever shifting nature of memory, time, place and loss. Created by visionary Aotearoa artists, choreographer Bianca Hyslop and artist Rowan Pierce.

After the recent cancellation of the programmed season at the Aotearoa New Zealand Festival, 2022 this will be a night not to be missed.
