Text:A short film by talented Auckland couple Andy Jalfon and Skot Barnett is showing at the Documentary Edge Festival. Te Manu Ahi follows the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra and Atamira Dance Company as they collaborate to produce a stage spectacle. Te Manu Ahi follows Catherine Blomfield and Moss Patterson as they prepare the students for the performance of a lifetime. With a cast from ages 5 to 25 and a wide range of backgrounds and cultures, Te Manu Ahi unites them with dance. The show also features Auckland's sound of the city, the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra, to bring power to the performance. With a high energy of colour, sound and movement, this is a story that will inspire and amaze, with breathtaking performances to behold. Its showing again on Monday 25 May at midday and Saturday 30 May at 10.30am at Auckland’ Q Theatre, and Friday 5 June, Sunday 7 June and Saturday 13 June at The Roxy Cinema in Wellington.
