Following his acclaimed performances of Tempest: Without a Body and Birds with Skymirrors during Festival 2010, Lemi Ponifasio returns with another stunning work, exploring the legacy of the First World War and the seismic impact the conflict had around the world.

Through an intoxicating mix of extreme physicality, poetic movement, striking imagery and a dynamic interplay of light and darkness, I AM takes inspiration from artist Colin McCahon's groundbreaking painting Victory over Death 2, exploring identity, conflict and the power of art to transform and elevate us in counterbalance to the horrors wrought by war.

New Zealand's most innovative international contemporary dance and theatre company, led by one of the most distinctive choreographers working today, MAU tackle issues of politics, race, tradition and mythology through a dynamic combination of ideas and influences, performed by a community of dancers drawn from all walks of life.

A co-production by Festival d'Avignon, Ruhrtriennale - International Festival of the Arts, the Edinburgh International Festival and Auckland Arts Festival
