Pae Pae means doorstep in Maori
Based on the understanding of the aboriginal culture in New Zealand, we aim to sublimate the process of shaping limitations
and boundaries we face in our everyday life into a doorstep after crossing into a work of art through self-reflection
We are going to share our lives by looking into where we have come from and how we are living in the present together
as members of the society.
When people with disabilities are trying to step forward, they often encounter barriers.
We have listened how they had run into those barriers and how they crossed them over.
So, are we going to face the barriers as something that cannot be overcome?
Or are we going to find the moment when the barriers transform into a doorstep to a completely new advancement?
The choreographer Suzanne Cowan will perform various impromptu activities to create this work and,
from time to time, write from a provocative point of a view along with other true journalists to arouse the sense of subjectivity.
- Imagine sitting down in a room where the boundaries and limitations are constantly changing and reforming.
- Identity is a dynamic process of changing and reforming of oneself according to the social environment looking for oneself.
