Saturday is our last day. We’ve had some wonderful floor talks with thought provoking conversations from dancers, theorists, photographers and video artists. Our final talk will be given by Moana Nepia and Mika. Sadly Charles Koroneho has had to pull out, but don’t let that stop you from coming as Moana and Mika are both deeply committed to expanding ideas of Maori dance and will have a lot to share with us.

There have been many fabulous conversations in Maori dance throughout the exhibition and conversations will be continued in the future.
