Australian dance artist Victoria Hunt’s solo Copper Promises embodies the cultural and physical journey of Hinemihi – a female ancestor, but also a ceremonial meetinghouse connected with her own Maori cultural heritage: a carved ancestral house which was ‘acquired’ and transported to Britain after a devastating volcanic eruption in 1886. Hinemihi’s story is interwoven with Hunt’s own, tracing themes of reconnecting with family and culture, and learning from the land. Post-show artist talkback February 1. This performance includes loud sounds and moments of intense lighting effects.
