Ko Te Ākau – Poetics of Land, Water and Sky

Ko Te Ākau is a visual arts installation and curated performance programme for live and virtual spaces. The project references the collaborative works of artists Ralph Hotere and Bill Culbert and serves as the inspiration for the Ākau, where the ocean meets the land, the horizon connects land, water and sky. In this shared space of Matariki, performances will journey us through remembrance, acknowledgement and aspiration. The hope of a poetic land, water and sky is the horizon carried by the Ākau, where the optimism and guidance of a human being in ceremonial performance places our imagination among the stars.

Performed live on location and simultaneously streamed online.
