News May/June 2010:


EDINBURGH, SCOTLAND -- Lemi Ponifasio, a Samoan choreographer residing in New Zealand, will bring two of his bestknown dance works to 2010 Edinburgh International Festival this summer.

His company MAU--which means revolution--will perform TEMPEST: WITHOUT A BODY on Sat. & Sun. Aug. 14-15 at the Edinburgh Playhouse. Part dance, part theatre, part ritual, TEMPEST is an awe-inspiring reflection on our modern world. Sporting full-face Maori tattoo, veteran Maori activist Tame Iti is the focus of this vivid and ferocious vision of paradise and hell. Inspired by Shakespeare, TEMPEST delves deep into the iconic world of Polynesian culture.

BIRDS WITH SKYMIRRORS will be performed Aug. 17 & 18 at the same venue. A co-production between several international dance companies, BIRDS asks some big questions about our role in the planet. At a time of urgent and anxious debates on global warming, the performance piece is an examination, through beauty and stillness, of our relationship with the earth.
