The workshop intensive will explore Koroneho’s TŪĀHU, a new philosophical approach to intercultural and interdisciplinary art practice. TŪĀHU research emphasizes the dancing, performance, cultural body working between and across the studio - marae context as an integral process for the workshop participants’ experience of the intercultural art practice of Charles Koroneho. Immersed within the culturally diverse spaces of the studio - marae framework participants will examine solo choreography and performance training, as the primary focus of their daily program. They will practice a demanding and thorough re-examination of the dancing, cultural body and movement in all aspects of the residency.
