And leotards.  Those kept showing up too.  Everybody was in shiny leotards.  It was the 80s afterall.

I had the privilege of seeing a development showing of Louise Potiki Bryant’s Ngaro earlier in the year.  I’ve always loved Louise’s work and the brilliant way she integrates film and AV into her performances.  Add in some infectious beats by Paddy Free and textile couture by Rona Ngahuia Osborne (I loved her funky boutique Native Agent that used to be in Kingsland) and you’ve got a recipe for something quite extraordinary.
