Kete Aronui - Taane Mete & Taiaroa Royal

Television (Excerpts) – 2007

This episode from series five of Kete Aronui, a documentary series featuring Aotearoa's artists that screened on Māori Television, follows the careers of iconic contemporary dancers Taane Mete and Taiaroa Royal. For both, training at Te Whaea propelled them into their art, teaching them not only technique but also a way of life. Featuring footage of Royal dancing in Douglas Wright's Forever (1993), the excerpt also includes a dance class with Michael Parmenter, another dance great, and discussion of dance companies Limbs and Black Grace.

I seem to think that dance chose me, I didn’t choose it. It chose me to be a vehicle to communicate.
– Tairoa Royale
