“I found that all I am accountable to, in truth, is the tiny dot of black at the centre of the iris.
The pupil, some mini pitch black night sky, and beyond - The Great Formless.
It was buzzy, man.” — ScatterGun

Over the course of one long, winding night, Agnes takes us on a journey; from the memorial for her little brother, Rūaumoko, through the twisted streets of the city, that mirror the sinews and synapses of her internal world. Together, we dive deep into the inky void, emerging into the flaring neon of a new day.

ScatterGun: After the Death of Rūaumoko examines the relationship between displacement, grief and the healing power of home, in a refreshingly honest, joyful exploration of the urban consciousness. 

Multidisciplinary artist Ana Chaya Scotney (Ngai Tūhoe) delivers a masterclass in solo performance, accompanied by her trademark loop pedal. Ana weaves together poetry, movement and sound, with the voices of whānau from Tūhoe, in a celebration of the profound connection between the human body and te whenua ūkaipō (homeland).
