The Thrum of the Tide
The Thrum of the Tide

The Thrum of the Tide is a project by artists Jenny Gillam and Eugene Hansen that delves into the 20th century story of Te Ana Ru cave, known as ‘the ballroom cave’. It has been said that early settlers held Saturday night dances in the cave until the 1920s, on a re-purposed, winchable kauri floor installed by local timber mill workers. The dances are a well-known folklore in Huia and Whatipū and it is thought the floor is still in the cave, buried deep under the sand.
