Kori Pūrakau | Year 1-8
Kori Pūrakau (Dancing with Mythology) is the half-day workshop programme introducing students to basic choreographic processes that explore telling a story through dance and movement. Ideal for students from Year 1 to 8, it derives inspiration from Pou Kapua or Cloud Pillar, the centre’s stunning 21-metre carving which narrates the Maori myth of the great chieftain Kupe, the creation stories of Ranginui and Papatuanuku and the legend of Maui.
The dance workshop series is led by Atamira Dance Company. Sessions are approximately 2.5 hours in duration.
Maximum of 60 students per session. Maximum of 1 session can be booked by one school due to limited availability.
