Atamira Dance Company presents TOMO, an intimate new work choreographed by Gabrielle Thomas. Steeped in the realm of wairua, and stories of her mother, TOMO resonates with autobiographical and ancestral memories.

 'A guardian and indignant philosopher, rampant collector of beliefs, ideas and experiences stockpiled to tipping point, as the ones who loved her waded listlessly through her terrain of terracotta, charcoal and grit.’

 TOMO continues Gabrielle’s creative collaboration with composer Peter Hobbs and lighting designer Vanda Karolczak, and follows on from her previous Atamira work Manaia presented at Q in 2016.

Kōrero // There will be an optional pre-show discussion about TOMO with Gabrielle Thomas facilitated by Atamira Dance Company on Thursday 10 October from 6:00-6:15.

Choreographer: Gabrielle Thomas
Composer: Peter Hobbs
