Goodbye conscious consumer, hello capitalist perfection, from farm to fridge all neatly disguised for your ethical pleasure. MEAT is a contemporary dance work in collaboration with DANCE PLANT Collective, which unwraps the meat industry and explores its social and environmental implications. MEAT offers an immersive and penetrating dive into the unsettling psychology of consumption; what are you consuming and what consumes you? MEAT is a Dance and Physical Theatre work choreographed by Tui Hofmann in collaboration with DANCE PLANT Collective. Dance Plant was first established in 2016 by a group of 6 Auckland-based, contemporary dance artists. Hofmann has worked closely with Alex Zielinski (Sonic Artist) from Poland, who came to New Zealand specifically to collaborate on this project and Achmed Abman (Circool Circus) who has designed the set. Dance Plant Collective were the winners of 2018 Auckland Fringe Best Newcomer Award.

"This collective have created an aesthetic experience that is refreshingly abstract and skillfully composed...this event reveals an unpretentious generation of artists..." Danz, Tru Paraha, 2018
