New Zealand choreographer Lemi Ponifasio’s Stones In Her Mouth brings together ten Maori women. Through chants, songs, oratory and dance, they unite in protest and rage while also conveying resilience and adaptivity. Though all is voiced in the Maori language, the emotive power of their message is universal, reflecting and refracting societal ills and turmoil felt in all corners of the world and at all strata.
