SHORT + SWEET DANCE
Preoccupy, prey on, possess, haunt, torment, hound and consume consume consume.
Currently in last semester of Dance Studies at the University of Auckland.
This year I wish to explore what else I have to offer as a dance practitioner, focusing on choreography. As a dancer, I tend to favour dances that require high physicality, and this can also be evident in choreography.Mea Tau performed by Leighton Lee Rangi, Taitanyk Toniu, Sione Fataua and Villa Junior Lemanu was the first piece for this year.
“Mea Tau raises the bar for precision engineering … the work exceeded expectations in all directions. Tight, and strict choreographies aid the manly themes in this piece, which are ultimately so much broader than you might expect …” The Daily Blog NZ
Obsess will be different as I explore what it would be like to choreograph and perform. I am working in collaboration with a good friend of mine, Villa Lemanu.
Curious and willing to continue learning and exploring dance.
