Footnote Dance is unique as a repertoire company with a commitment to new New Zealand dance.

Perforum 2004 is a concept developed for ‘FRINGENZ’ to facilitate discussion with the creative forces of new contemporary dancer. Over the two nights, Choreographers Raewyn Hill, Katie Burton, Moss Patterson, Guy Ryan, Katerina Waldner and Deirdre Tarrant will take part in Perforum 2004
Perforum 2004 will include a showing of works in progress alongside a discussion forum facilitated by Deirdre Tarrant, Director of Footnote Dance.
This is a unique opportunity for the public to share in, and perhaps actively influence, the creation of professional contemporary dance.

The Footnote dancers Kathleen-Malee Smith, David Zeitner-Smith, Erynne Gleeson, Halina Wolyncewicz and Chris Watson bring a wealth of experience and energy to the creative process of these new dances works.

These works will ultimately be part of the repertoire for the season of ‘Feet First 2004’, which will tour nationally later in the year.

- Dance never stands still and Perforum is an experiment in its evolution – making a dialogue with dance -
