Event description

Description

Saturday 2 March - afternoon, short programme

A collision of artists from both sides of the Pacific Ocean: Hemispheres is a collaboration between the longest-running contemporary dance companies in New Zealand and in China. This triple-bill showcases the technical mastery of detailed movement that is a signature of Chinese dance companies, with the powerful physicality that New Zealand dancers are renowned for across the world.

This half show will feature Mass Solitude, with time for Q&A at the end of the performance.

Mass Solitude:

Mass Solitude (群孤) returns to forgotten movement rituals as a way of connecting with each other beyond language and technology. Here, human proximity and surveillance are our key means of communicating and belonging to the group. Mass Solitude is a movement meditation on connection and isolation. Within it we look at how people might interact whilst under constant observation, and consider what might inspire us to rebel, escape, or commit ourselves further into the folds of the community.

Please note that there is no allocation of seats. Doors will open 30 minutes before show start time.

Koha/donation gratefully received.
