New Zealand dance company MAU visits Sweden

Coming to Stockholm is a hypnotizing performance by New Zealand's well-known contemporary dance company MAU, with the Samoan choreographer Lemi Ponifasio. "Birds with Skymirrors" is a frightening and beautiful performance - half dance and half ceremony - which evokes ideas about climate change and man's place on earth.  Dansens Hus has a special 2 for 1 offer for New Zealanders in Sweden.

The offer is valid for the performances on 8 and 9 September at 7 pm.  Book tickets at Dansens Hus box office, Barnhusgatan 14, or call 08-508 990 90.  Quote "New Zealand friend" when booking your tickets to qualify for the offer.  The discount applies to new bookings and cannot be combined with other offers. 

Lemi Ponifasio is the founder of MAU and also a Samoan chief. His work is rooted in reality, but at the same time touches on something bigger, something almost spiritual.  Ponifaso's work has been acclaimed as physically extraordinary, imaginative and executed with masterful precision.
