Counterclockwise At Bats

strident Wellington's powerhouse fusion of dance, music, film and environmental design hit the stage at BATS with


From the 14th through 29th of September at 7.30pm strident will be performing their new work counterclockwise. Hot on the tail of their sell out success at the 2001 Wellington Fringe Festival where they were awarded best dance of the Fringe.

strident is Sarah Sproull, Claire Martin, Katarina Waldner, Justine Cooper & Lyn Pringle. Live music by Peter Daube and Sebastian Morgan-Lynch. Lighting by Martyn Roberts.
