The New Zealand hip-hop dancer Aloalii Tapu saw Pina Bausch’s piece Café Müller during his dance trainer and decided to pursue contemporary dance. As a young man of Polynesian descent, this decision was astonishing to his friends: “You are dancing like a white guy” is what they say when they see each other from time to time in their favorite place, urban soul café in Auckland. And that’s why the piece finds its beginning there and develops into a coming-of-age story where western dance history meets the traditions of the Maori.
