About ANZFA: Belle - A Performance of Air

Movement of the Human

Enter a space transformed by moving shafts of light and mesmerising sound as high above and all around you a performance of air is created by aerialists, live musicians and dance artists. 

Known for her spectacular work as part of the creative team on World of Wearable Art (WOW), Malia Johnston collaborates with fellow artists Rowan Pierce, Jenny Ritchie and Eden Mulholland (MOTH) alongside an exceptional cast for this sure-fire Festival favourite, coming exclusively to Wellington. 

BELLE takes its name from the French word libellule (which means dragonfly) and is also the name of one of the show’s specially-made pieces of circus equipment. In some cultures, the dragonfly is a symbolic creature that represents transformation – as it turns from a larva into a dazzling flyer. In BELLE, transformation is created with the magic of light, as the performers disappear and are revealed across the space while you are guided slowly around them.    

Wander solo, or enjoy with friends, BELLE is suitable for ages 12 and up - there are a strictly limited number of spaces per night, so get in quick.
