Talented dancers poised to perform
A host of talented Auckland dancers will take to the stage with the New Zealand Dance Company, as the company makes a onenight-only performance at the ASB Theatre during its first North Island tour on May 25.
The company’s inaugural production, Language of Living, features the work of Mt Roskill dancer Tupua Tigafua and the company’s newest recruit, Sandringham dancer Gareth Okan, who has been awarded a scholarship with the company.
The show features choreographed performances backed by innovative costuming, set design, video and live music.
The company’s artistic director, Kingsland resident Shona McCullagh, says the show will appeal to both aficionados and those less familiar with dance.
Auckland audiences will also be treated to the New Zealand premiere of the company’s first international work, Faune, inspired by legendary dancer Vaslav Nijinsky’s original choreography and performed by New Zealand’s global dance star Ursula Robb.
Stepping up: The New Zealand Dance Company is performing its inaugural production Language of Living in Auckland for one night only.
