We collide, we connect. The inner circle sparks, flares around our bodies. The moon and the ocean shine back and forth. How can the animal inside be confined and free? Can it find it’s reflection in the opaque? NO. No we fire back. Yes. Yes is a fire. We won't be denied. With breaths, with gusts, we are free.


Massive thank you to Sheldon, Celina for exploring, sharing and finding new things during lock down COVID19 with me. It's been amazing collaborating with you guys. Thank you to Nawam for always helping me out and making beautiful music. My brother Anup Khapung thank you for your beautiful design. Also thanks to the Tempo team. Thank you for watching this video.

Anu first began dancing by doing Nepalese cultural dance, then went on to studying dance at the Hagley Dance Company, graduated from Unitec and recently finished working for Footnote New Zealand Dance as a company dancer for 3 years. As a freelance artist she is excited for collaborating with other beautiful artists and connect.
