Inspired by Lake Wanaka in the South Island of Aotearoa, acclaimed artist Louise Potiki Bryant presents a striking dance film that explores our consciousness and emotional state, embodied in the Māori word “roto” meaning both “lake” and “within”; the lake being a metaphor for our consciousness, and the surface of the lake being likened to our emotional state.
