Book now for SHOWCASE 2023 to enjoy new works by guest choreographers Jessie McCall and Kasina Campbell & Abbie Rogers of Atamira Dance Company.


Unitec dance acknowledges the many kaiako, tauira, and kaikanikani who have enriched the dance programme contributing to a living legacy of education through movement, time, and space. Since its inception in 1989 to its current format, Unitec Dance and our alumni have been the nucleus of the dance community in Aotearoa.


SHOWCASE 2023 will premiere Unitec Dance alumni Jessie McCall’s Industry Party, a full-length work performed by our Year 1 and 3 cohort. Industry Party collides the promise and problems of power – as it plays out within us and within our industries. Does the vitality of inanimate objects let them edit the guestlist? Can we disrupt relentless mechanisms of mammonistic progress and swerve toward humanity – or will it kill the vibe? The punch has spiked itself in revolt. There’s a megalomaniac in the air vent. The astroturf needs a trim. Who is in – who is out – and how did we wake up here?


Kasina Campbell (Ngā Puhi, Ngāti Porou, Ngāti Kahungunu ki Wairoa) & Abbie Rogers (Kāi Tahu, Te Arawa) close the evening with Tipuranga a reflection of whānaungatanga, understanding and embodiment. Tipuranga is the culmination of a year-long haerenga undertaken with the extraordinary artists of Atamira Dance Company. We are honoured to present a performance which celebrates the deep hononga between Atamira and Unitec Dance.

When the world of high art collides with the world of advertising and consumerism ‘Limited
Time Only’ is what you get. An absurd physical-theatre comedy from multi-award show
watching director Hone Taukiri that will give you a great night out and ask for nothing in return
but all of your money.
GrindHouse Theatre presents: LIMITED TIME ONLY – available for a Limited Time only…
