Tui is a dance artist and choreographer from New Zealand. She trained at Unitec from 2014-16, gaining a Bachelor's Degree in Performing and Screen Arts majoring in contemporary dance. Tuī is interested in bringing performance to site specific locations, cross-fertilizing dance principles with other mediums to create new and exciting performance based artwork. Her most recent work was ‘Social distant dancing’ for Lunga Arts Festival 2020 in Iceland. Tui is a founding member of Dance Plant Collective and continues to enjoy working in this collaborative way. Tui has co-choreographed several Dance Plant works, including 'Desire Line(s)', 'Exist as Rainforest', 'Desperate Late Night Energy', 'Entwined', and 'Lite Moves'. In 2017, Tui choreographed the highly successful full-length dance theatre show MEAT, which Dance Plant toured to Auckland, Melbourne, Dunedin (winning ‘Best Dance’ at Dunedin Fringe Festival), Wellington, and Whangarei. Tui has also spent time living in Berlin and London where experimental performance thrives and she hopes to base herself in London again once things settle down.
