Stranded Pieces

Presented By Roaming Bodies

Stranded Pieces is a solo contemporary dance work by Roaming Bodies in search of the missing connections between the multitudes of self within community and environment.

Any proceeds of this production will go towards helping people in need within Ukraine. Help support the Pōneke art scene whilst supporting Ukraine.

It is necessary to find the time and space to process and mull over our options as a community. In this work, extrospective perspectives are questioned to more deeply understand how we might best find salubrious practices.

The ‘pieces’ of this puzzle are bridged together through movement, sound, spoken word and live music. Stranded Pieces’s set and costume design are inspired by Matt Pine's Placement Projects that took place at Auckland's City Arts Gallery in 1978 and a new installation at Te Papa in 2016-2017.

Roaming Bodies is a company of Wellington based independent artist.
