Kiko (Flesh) brings together two of Aotearoa’s most influential dance companies - Body Island, a collective that produces both digital and live dance performances and Atamira Dance Company, a contemporary Māori platform whose dreams emerge and find expression through the dancing body.

Kiko allows you to traverse into an evening of film and dance with timeless souls, into a world-ing that acknowledges the fleshly life of all things, bountiful paradises and running towards the queer and ineffable.

An evening of short vignettes with a collection of emerging ideas that spring out from our corporeal embodiment, our skin and shape to connect us to this place.

Tasked with having fun, playing and risking discovery, these stalwart artists are here to express the spirit of live performance and create an intimacy in the shared experience of what we cannot escape from, our flesh.

Kiko is the result of a 2 week creative residency (through Atamira’s Tuakana programme) featuring participating artists Kelly Nash, Nancy Wijohn, Jack Gray, Taane Mete, Sean MacDonald + Company.
