See some of the best young dancers in the country perform in the New Zealand School of Dance Choreographic Season, IN A SPACE.
This innovative performance season will integrate daring aerial work, stunning lighting, video projection and edgy set design. The New Zealand School of Dance Choreographic Season has become a much-anticipated annual event in the Wellington dance calendar, and is created by third year contemporary dance students from the New Zealand School of Dance in collaboration with design and technical students from Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School.
This year’s Choreographic Season is thematically based on astronomy; exploring the world of black holes, cosmic rays, Jupiter and its surrounding moons. The student choreographers’ various interpretations of the astronomy theme weave together into a one-hour dance work that is high energy and quirky.
The music ranges from ambient sound-scapes, kiwi dub, sixties songstress Nancy Sinatra, Tahitian drumming and opera, reflecting the broad range of choreography presented within the performances. The astronomy theme of IN A SPACE ties in with Matariki, the Maori New Year, which is celebrated in June throughout New Zealand. 2009 is also the International Year of Astronomy, providing a surge of interest in all things astronomical. The students have been mentored by some of New Zealand’s best contemporary dance choreographers in the process of creating their work.
