About Touch Compass and InMotion Matariki

Touch Compass is New Zealand’s leading professional performing arts company combining artists with and without a disability, specialising in aerial work, contact improvisation, dance-theatre and film. Our work has won many national and international awards and our performers and collaborators span the globe and count as some of the leading lights in contemporary performance.

InMotion is a programme of work which explores the theme of the human form and its relationship with disruptive technologies. InMotion takes our work out of the theatre and into outdoor public spaces. InMotion offers our performers the chance to move within the everyday environment, and our audiences the chance to get up close and personal to our work.

InMotion Matariki is our all-wheels illuminated parade which celebrates Matariki: the Maori New Year. The inaugural parade, held in 2017, was a great success. Touch Compass are in the throes of organising the next parade, which is planned for July 2018. 

Our goal is that InMotion Matariki is fully inclusive and accessible for all.
