Wellington Freelance Dance Festival on the Fringe!

One Night at Thistle

Fresh from the inaugural Wellington Freelance Dance Festival in November 2012 at Matchbox Studios, the Wellington Freelance Dance Collective take time out from their busy Fringe schedule to present One Night at Thistle, a night of new and used dance works.

Bounce your sun-tanned limbs up the stairs to Thistle Hall for a feast of Dance Mayhem and other Awesome Art Stuff too.

The Wellington Freelance Dance Collective staged their own Dance Festival in 2012, after having emerged from the dark, damp nights of a Wellington Winter, from WOW, Project Born, Empress Stilt Dance, and Back of the Bus with Java Dance Company,

2013 sees dancers from the Collective performing for Fringe Festival shows The Lady Garden (The Naked Brastrap), Never Before: A Colony for Urban Change (Urbantramper), Ella and Will (Anita Hutchins) and Feet of Clay (Livie MacPhedran).

Thank goodness somewhere in there they have time to dance and to create for One Night at Thistle for your dance-viewing pleasure.
