Tango Huaranga: Removed, Replanted  -  Denesa Chan and Quique Miller

Residency: 5 - 30 September 2022
Public Workshop: 1 - 4pm Saturday 17 September
Research Presentation: 7pm Thursday 30 September

Two expats (Argentinian + Chinese/Swedish American), two hemispheres, two gender expressions, two queer sexualities, two native languages, two acquired languages, two native habitats. Belonging and identity are tied to the land, the hapori: local community, and layers of cultural meaning which birthed and housed us. Through multimedia dance/film/music/photography research, we excavate our dance practices (Tango, contemporary dance, contact improvisation and traditional Chinese somatic arts), to explore themes of identity, assimilation, gender, decolonization, ecology and equality and discover what happens to an individual, a community, an ecosystem, and a language when humans migrate and become both insiders and outsiders to te taiao: the natural environment and te hapori whānui: the wider community.
