He Owha Matarua Hauntology of Inheritance

  • Community

A unique, sensorial performance walk of connectivity that explores whakapapa, history and a deepening experience of the beautiful forest at Byers Walk, Piha.

Performance artists Suzanne Cowan and Rodney Bell have lived experience of disability, giving them a unique perspective on navigating and choreographing space. 

Join them on a journey of whakapapa, history, colonisation, birds, trees and insects, while asking the question: how can we honour our desire to access the forest and be an active part of the ecology that surrounds us?

The entire walk/roll is approximately 2hrs 30mins and includes a reflective gathering with kai at the end.

Wheelchair-friendly transport available for a small fee.

The terrain of Byers Walkway is suitable for people with mobility impairments but those with a power chair may need some assistance as the path is uneven in parts.
