Footnote Perforum at the Fringe

Once again Footnote Dance brings its unique Perforum Programme to the fantastic Fringe festival. Share the insights and ideas that form the process of making new New Zealand dance and visit the studio where the imagination takes flight..... The choreographers are Julia Sadler, young up and coming innovation from Christchurch making MATCH to music by Ben Brady and working with the energies of Erynne Gleeson, Andrew Rusk and new Footnoter Jesse Wikiriwhi. Tim Fletcher has been visiting home over the summer and is returning to Berlin to dance with Volksballett Kollectiv.

While here he has been working on a new choreography The Chicken or the Lamb? -How do people deal with long haul flights? Confinement in a specific and bizarre social environment....where do people internally fly to? Dancing are Anita Hunziker,Andrew,Erynne and Jesse and the music is being commissioned by Wellington's own Sam Scott. Around the World in Wellington, a look at stories in dance and song from the many cultures that make this city is being developed by Deirdre Tarrant for the Capital E National Youth Festival at Circa in March.Dancers Sarah Knox and Hannah Stannard join children of Wellington as the full company prepares for this project. Last, but by no means least! Michael Parmenter is working towards a new work to be seen in October and is rehearsing Bhakti,a touchstone piece from his earlier choreographies for Footnote and the beginning of a process that will result in this outstanding choreographer making a new dance statement in Aotearoa.
