Dance, Theatre Aotearoa New Zealand

Meremere is a stunning autobiographical multimedia theatre work that brings the insightful, surprising, very personal and incredibly engaging story of artist Rodney Bell to life.
A critically acclaimed dancer and performer, Bell is internationally renowned for his physically integrated performance and has been dancing professionally since 1994 when he began as a founding member of Touch Compass Dance Trust. He relocated to California in 2007 to join AXIS Dance Company as principal dancer, touring to 32 states until 2012, but after finishing with AXIS he faced many challenges – including a period of homelessness on the streets of San Francisco. That life changing experience inspired the creation of Meremere.
Meremere is layered and compelling, an autobiographical performance work that integrates documentary footage, interviews, movement and imagery into 60 extraordinary minutes. Whether you’re a lover of dance, music or the spoken word, Meremere will have you entranced.
