‘Meremere is a complex work of art where design, Audio Visual and lighting play as significant a role as story-telling, dance and music.’
NZ Herald, October 2016

Meremere is a multi disciplinary work incorporating stories, driving interactive audiovisual elements with movement.

Meremere is layered and compelling: an autobiographical performance work that integrates documentary footage, interviews, movement and imagery into 54 extraordinary minutes. It is an inspiring multi-faceted survival story with a focus on Rodney’s time living rough on the streets of San Francisco. It is funny, humble and compelling and engages with a wide range of audiences. An impressionistic and surrealexperience of an extraordinary artist’s life.

A critically acclaimed dancer and performer, Rodney is internationally renowned for his physically integrated performance
