About the Event

A collaboration between Fabric Artist Maungarongo Te Kawa and Open Floor Creatrix Kaiakindness.

To dance down the stars >> !!!! <<to call them on to our dance floor to inspire us, to enlive in us.

For this weekend -  if you dare - you are invited to celebrate! 

To lean into some fucken joy and shine!!! (((I wanna say bitches, but I'm not sure if that's appropriate!))

But you get my meaning.

Let's celebrate together the completion of another cycle of our year. 

Acknowledging the hard, the really fucken hard, the births, the moments of absolute joy, and everything in between.

Can we celebrate it all? 

Kaiakindness will weave their expertise of movement inquiry, using music and invitation.

Maungarongo will infuse the floor with story and guide us into creative expression. 

Do you need to be an artist to come? Hell no!

Do I need to be a dancer to come? Nope again...

Do you have a body? Yes, then you can come

Do you wanna full up on YUM YUM YES YES!!! then come

This workshop is for you to find expression and joy and love and all the good things in the depths of winter.

....and to celebrate you...the unique human you are.

What to expect?

Joy, laughter, celebration, wild dancing, creative mess, mischief...FUN

Yes, expect to have some fun.

If you have been on the floor with Maungarongo, 

you know that their very nature of existence brings deep insights and JOY...and a fair amount of cheek.

So flick that head back, look forward to the depths of winter....and ask yourself...

How do I wanna celebrate my Māori New Year? 

Surrounded but fabulous humans!!! 

If it is a hell yes! Then come on, get that ticket!!

If it's an eeek, I'm not sure. Then come anyway.

Warm up this winter, with us, dancing down the stars.

...and let's be real, 2020-2021 has been funky asf!

Life is too divine not to celebrate...all the things.
