A protean artist, Charles Koroneho works in the fields of performance and culture. He created Te Toki Haruru, a conceptual platform (est.1997) to explore cultural collaboration and the intersection between dance, theatre and design. Te Toki Haruru projects are developed as research, workshops and performances; exploring the collision between Maori cosmology, New Zealand society and global cultures.
He is a founding member of Te Kanikani O Te Rangatahi, graduate of the New Zealand School of Dance and Elam School of Fine Arts, University of Auckland. He has performed extensively in New Zealand and abroad with Te Toki Haruru, Lemi Ponifasio MAU, Michael Parmenter’s Commotion Company, The Royal New Zealand Ballet, Taiao Dance Theatre, Min Tanaka and Guillermo Gomez-Pena.
