The Fibonacci by NZDC co-Artistic Director Tor Colombus opens up a dreamy terracotta world that explores the mathematical Fibonacci sequence. With a movement vocabulary that drifts effortlessly between the natural and the mechanical, The Fibonacci reveals a tapestry of pattern and form, which provokes a feeling of connection to something deeper than the detail of each individual action.
The world premiere of emerging Māori choreographer Eddie Elliott’s Uku – Behind the Canvas is a journey through the power of vulnerability and the strength within struggle. Eddie engages raw, confronting storytelling and draws from the pūrākau (storytelling) held within Te Ao Māori interwoven with NZSL (New Zealand Sign Language) and inspiration from visual artist Andy Denzler. Anticipation and intensity are at the heart of riveting movement paired with cleansing uku (clay), symbolising the relationship between Hineahuone and Tāne – where we’ve come from and where we will return.
