HBAF 2018 - Pango/Black

HBAF 2018 - Pango/Black

The doors to Napier Municipal Theatre will be thrown open and the majestic space filled with dance, light and live music, as part of White Night.

In an extraordinary performance, six male dancers ignite the stage, bringing movement, energy and life to explore the concept of starting from nothing, or blackness, Te Kore.

Featuring Shayne Carter (Straightjacket Fits) on guitar, taonga puoro by master player James Webster, and an electronic score by Peter Hobbs, Pango/Black creates a dramatic mix of soundscapes and movement with the reverberations of ancient karakia and takutaku chant; embodying the characteristics of our atua Māori.

This highly acclaimed multi-sensory performance is the result of a collaboration between some of New Zealand’s greatest artists, choreographed by Moss Paterson (renowned internationally for his work, including the 2011 Rugby World Cup opening ceremony).

For one illuminous night, Pango/Black is free for all to enjoy! Made possible with the support of Napier City Council.

NB: Registrations for this free show should still be made with Ticketek.
