About Night Light
Indulge your senses in a complementary double bill that brings to life an ancient sequence of the natural world and an environment that exists between fiction and reality.
The Fibonacci by NZDC co-Artistic Director Tor Colombus premieres in Auckland as “a dreamy terracotta performance” (Nexus) that explores the mathematical Fibonacci sequence. With a “movement vocabulary [that] is fluid and attractive, drifting effortlessly between the natural and the mechanical” (Theatreview), the work reveals a tapestry of pattern and form, which provokes a feeling of connection to something deeper than the detail of each individual action.
The world premiere of emerging Māori choreographer Eddie Elliott’s Uku – Behind the Canvas is a journey through the power of vulnerability and the strength within struggle. Eddie engages raw, confronting storytelling and draws from the pūrākau (storytelling) held within Te Ao Māori interwoven with NZSL (New Zealand Sign Language) and inspiration from visual artist Andy Denzler. Anticipation and intensity are at the heart of riveting movement paired with cleansing uku (clay), symbolising the relationship between Hineahuone and Tāne – where we’ve come from and where we will return.
An evening of earthy contrast by two dynamic New Zealand choreographers, Night Light will leave you in awe of the talent and artistry brewing right here on our shores.
