Matter is an exceptionally inventive work created by one of New Zealand’s finest and internationally renowned choreographers. This highly acclaimed piece contemplates indecision, environment and questions of purpose within a surreal network of giant pillars. Matter invites you to delve into the depths of humanity, including your own.

Whispers from Pandora’s Box is a theatrical exposition where Kill Bill meets Elizabeth I, a true romp of action-packed pandemonium. With a score created from mashed up film soundtracks and absurdist music, this black comedy contains Elizabethan-period inspired costumes, David Lynch style elements, and shockingly timed fight sequences.
