Atamira Dance Company
The San Francisco International Arts is pleased to announce that the organization will present the mainland U.S. debut of Atamira Dance Company from New Zealand. The performance is part of the ensemble's first national American tour that also includes dates in Hawaii and the Jacobs Pillow Dance Festival in Massachusetts.

Atamira Dance Company is the leading creator and presenter of Maori contemporary dance theatre of Aotearoa (New Zealand). The company's work embodies the essence of a unique landscape shaped by the cultural identity of their people and their stories. The choreographers, dancers and designers reflect the diverse cross-section of voices in Aotearoa today through the artistic expression of their rural and urban backgrounds.

The company creates compelling, high quality Maori contemporary dance theatre that reaches out to audiences and reflects the many aspirations of our Mana Whenua (territorial rights, power from the land - power associated with possession and occupation of tribal land). Founded in 2000 as a response to the need for a platform for Maori urban identity through dance in New Zealand, the collective vision and history of Atamira Dance Company through the support of its community and supporters has continued its rapid rise as a world force in indigenous contemporary performing arts.
