Guided by Maori protocols and cosmology, TANGI WAI… THE CRY OF WATER merges installation, theatre and dance in a striking work about female authority, inheritance and rituals of belonging. Victoria has drawn on the talents of her multi-disciplinary team to investigate the transformative qualities of light, water, incantations and embodiment. The impressive creative team includes first-time collaborations with lighting designer Fausto Brusamolino and dancer Kristina Chan and a powerful company of women. TANGI WAI… THE CRY OF WATER explores the concept of Te Arai , a place of rememberances – bodies abandoned by spirit, urged by unknown forces.
