FRAMED is part of the “embrace” series. The performers explore different relationships within a contemporary frame – at the intersection of visual arts, theatre, dance, music and installation. The piece will focus on the eight emotional states of the Natyasastra, the conerstone of traditional Indian arts practice, and will explore the relationship between two women of different ages and different cultures. It involves Maori dancer Victoria Hunt working with Tess de Quincey, generating an emphasis on cultural practice in the Asia Pacific area.
