From the creative team behind the NZ Fringe multiple award-nominated, crowd-favourite show, New Dance Group, comes a unique show designed to pull the curtains back on the delightful oddities of creating live dance. This is a dance show about dancing.
DANCE DANCED DANCING (2021), presented by Footnote New Zealand Dance and choreographed by Josie Archer & Kosta Bogoievski, takes the essence of their 2020 ChoreoCo work New Dance Group and blows it up. Brimming with punk-like energy and beautiful urgency, DANCE DANCED DANCING (2021) takes great pleasure and care with the improvisational possibilities of one single performance. As each very different venue nationwide will be incorporated into the world of DANCE DANCED DANCING (2021), the five Footnote company members will embrace and commit to their tightly constructed performance scores* as they take to the stage alongside a sixth performer, the playful and unexpected lighting design by Tony Black.
“A provocative, energetic delight.” Claire O’Loughlin, Pantograph Punch
“Delicious and funny” Amit Noy, Theatreview
