This theatre work was part of the Guerilla Collection 2018 led by Neil Ieremia, chief in charge of the New Zealand dance company Black Grace. Guerrilla Collection explores the daunting idea of “What will Auckland look like in 30 years, what will it look like, smell like, feel like, taste like”. For Curator Neil Ieremia, it was important for Pasifika People to be involved in this conversation.
“We are the largest Pacific City in the world. It’s so important that we have a voice and a seat at the table, so give us one! And if you don’t give us one, we’ll take one” he said.
Through 30 minute movement pieces, each artist, paired with the ridiculously talented Black Grace Dancers, showcases what they think/hope our city will look like in 30 years.
