Mata-Au, the Māori name of the Clutha River, means ‘surface current’. In Japanese, the homophonous phrase ‘また逢う’ (mata-au) means ‘to meet again’. The water dances and swirls as it connects places and people. It flows and gushes with forward momentum and anticipation. In writing this piece I was also inspired by ‘spring’, both as the season of its premiere, and as a bubbling source of water.

Commissioned for the inaugural At the World's Edge Festival in 2021 and premiered at Rippon Hall, Wanaka.
