COPPER PROMISES: HINEMIHI HAKA

VICTORIA HUNT

As part of Dimension Crossing: A season of performance and installation that considers states of in-between and transition.

I am the house and the house is me. I dance the history of the house and the house reveals my history.

Copper Promises is a new solo dance work by Victoria Hunt exploring the cultural and physical journey of Hinemihi: a female ancestor and a ceremonial space connected with Hunt’s Maori cultural heritage. Hinemihi’s story is interwoven with Hunt’s own journey: of finding family, of reconnecting with her culture and of learning from land, ancestors and peers. A collaboration with Hunt’s extended family and other artists, Copper Promisescreates distinctive movement and imagery, merging feeling and gesture as they echo across landscape and through time. It is a lament, a pilgrimage, a protest for ancestral treasures – Taonga.
