The Smokefree Arts Season of Intimate Space, choreographed and performed by the second and third year contemporary dance students, continues the tradition of presenting innovative, dynamic works by fresh new talent. The first half, Ascension, is based on the expressive works of French sculptor Auguste Rodin, while the second half, Mathematical Geography, is inspired by the works of one of New Zealand's finest artists, Colin McCahon.
