Victoria Hunt

Art Form: Dance

Residency Year: 2019

Victoria Hunt was born and raised in Australia, on the land of the Yugambeh people, Surfers Paradise. Hunt is a queer indigenous-Maori dancer, director, educator and activist living on the unceded lands of the Gadigal people of the Eora Nation, Sydney. Her ancestral affiliations are with Te Arawa, Ngāti Kahungunu, Rongowhakaata, English, Irish and Finnish. Her work aims to reinstate the power of Indigenous creativity through unravelling the complexities Indigenous people face within the politics of recognition, reclamation and remembrance. Central to this is the honouring of whakapapa (genealogy) and the revitalization of mana wahine (feminine knowledges). Her work is a gradual binding of intimate collaboration between artists, elders and communities.

Hunt was in residence at Bundanon in 2019.
