Piata, a compelling solo performance about the mythical Patupaiarehe trapped between two worlds, sent chills up my spine. The choreography was emotionally engaging and visually arresting. Bianca Hyslop perfectly embodied the physicality and spirituality of this being, managing to be both powerful and graceful in her performance.
Koru and Moko were the most enjoyable pieces to watch, as we got to see the dancers come together as an ensemble and perform flawlessly as one entity. The choreography was artfully centred on evolving patterns of spirals and loops, mirroring the actual shape of the koru and look of the moko.
KAHA is truly a visual spectacle that will leave you breathless, captivated and simply impressed. Be prepared to be emotionally invested and in complete awe by every single second of this energetic and wonderfully New Zealand production.
