Footnote Dance director Deirdre Tarrant has devised a format where six New Zealand choreographers will have an opportunity to work with the company to make six new works each to be performed by a solo dancer. And, in keeping with Footnote's mission to be at the forefront of Kiwi culture, each solo work is inspired by a remarkable New Zealander, chosen by the choreographer.
Footnote's 2009 Forte Solo Series will feature the following:
• Firecracker, Sarah Foster (choreography), Anita Hunziker (dancer), inspired by ex-pat pop star Ladyhawke
• Adze, Kristian Larsen (choreography), Claire Lissaman (dancer), inspired by multimedia artist "Phil Dadson":http://sounz.org.nz/contributor/composer/1026
• Somebody’s Darling, Michael Parmenter (choreography), Francis Christeller (dancer), inspired by composer "Douglas Lilburn":http://sounz.org.nz/contributor/composer/1063
