He Owha Matarua - Hauntology of Inheritance

Touch Compass is excited to co-present a fabulous work in conjunction with Auckland Arts Festival - He Owha Matarua: The Hauntology of Inheritance.

Conceived of and created by one of Touch Compass’s founding artists, Rodney Bell, and Dr Suzanne Cowan, this work is a unique, sensorial performance walk of connectivity that explores whakapapa, history and a deepening experience of the beautiful forest at Byers Walk, Piha. The two-hour roll/walk takes place on the 13th & 14th of March, and is wheelchair accessible.
