Te Wheke is a powerful full-length dance work from Atamira Dance Company, the inspirational collective who premiered this 2021 showcase in Aotearoa (New Zealand) to mark 21 years as a globally esteemed creator and presenter of Māori contemporary dance. Eight dancers and eight choreographic practitioners journey into the esoteric dimensions of human experience, revealing the eight tentacles of Te Wheke — the Octopus, a powerful guardian on this journey from the past into the future.

Solo and ensemble movement expressions occur within a sleek shape-shifting world of floating black silk. Layers of Te Ao Māori (The Māori World) emanate through accomplished patterns of video design, mesmeric soundscapes, and subtle shimmering garments with reflective lighting enhancing the darkness and light.
