Dance Aotearoa New Zealand has named dancer and choreographer Tru Paraha for this year’s Māori Choreolab: Te Kanikani Whakamatau recipient.

The award gives Paraha three weeks to develop material for a performance and short dance film, working alongside three dancers a one film-maker.

She says it’s the kind of opportunity that is needed for independent artists to explore ideas, concepts, styles and forms of expression.

Paraha is a former company member of Lemi Ponifasio’s MAU and recently choreographed, designed and produced blackOUT, an experimental dance work at the Kenneth Myers Centre in Auckland.
