Te Tīmatanga is a program to help grow and shape queer artists in Aotearoa each year. “Shallow Waters” is an expression of Takatāpui joy, that showcases what the human body is capable of. Kiriana hopes to inspire their community by demonstrating the art form as an accessible opportunity to explore body sovereignty. Through Te Tīmatanga, “Shallow Waters” aspires to drive Rangatahi Takatāpui participation in circus.
Auckland Pride approached Cuetone needing a team that honoured Whānau-oriented working protocols, as well as a co-partner that would be able to work with both the Auckland Pride team and the artist to ensure the capturing and preservation of the artform was respected and elevated.
