Born in Bundjalung Country, Australia, dance artist Victoria Hunt spent ten years researching her Maori heritage to prepare for Copper Promises. Her beautifully evocative solo explores the cultural and physical journey of Hinemihi – a female ancestor, and a sacred Maori meetinghouse – whose story is interwoven with Hunt’s own journey of finding family and reconnecting with her culture.
