Footnote – ChoreoCo. 2014

Footnote – ChoreoCo. 2014

As Footnote's renowned Choreolab intensive dance workshop comes to an end for 2014, new opportunities open for a specially selected cast who were named at the Choreolab finale – Jana Castillo, Lucy Marinkovich, Mikey Gudgeon, Serene Lorimer, Phoebe Heyhoe and Sarah Gatzonis.

A new initiative by the newly restructured Footnote, for the next month these six dancers will form a company called ChoreoCo. as they work with Craig Bary on his new performance Straight Laced. "There is so much talent and so few chances to dance full time: this gives six dancers a fantastic experience making a new work,” says Deirdre Tarrant in her new role on the Artistic Advisory Panel for For Sarah Gatzonis, this is particularly significant: “This is the first time I have been paid as a professional dancer, which is incredibly exciting. It validates the years of hard work studying in pursuit of a career in contemporary dance.


An outstanding New Zealand dancer in his own right, Craig Bary has returned back home from Australia to teach both Choreolab classes and choreograph Footnote’s first ChoreoCo season Straight Laced. Spanning both the New Zealand Fringe Festival and New Zealand Festival, this new work will look into the world of sex and sexuality, exploring the effect of a society dominated by the ‘straight lifestyle’ on decisions we make about our sexuality and relationships.

Featured within this work will be a duet performed by fulltime company dancers Manu Reynaud and Luigi Vescio that sits within the full work, exploring relationships and attractions that inform our individual sexuality.

This is a world premiere and the first time Footnote has had twelve dancers, so it is an exciting time for the new company. Diary Straight Laced now and get your Straight Laced premieres 9.30pm Sunday 2nd March at BATS Theatre.

NZ Fringe Festival, Wellington | 9.30pm 2nd - 8th March | BATS Theatre |
