Dance artist Victoria Hunt spent nearly 10 years researching her Maori heritage to prepare for Copper Promises. Her solo explores the cultural and physical journey of Hinemihi – a female ancestor, and the name for a Maori ceremonial house – whose story is interwoven with Hunt’s own journey of finding family and reconnecting with her culture. Employing lighting and visual effects, Copper Promises is Hunt’s pilgrimage and a tribute to her ancestry.
