There’s a taste of the old, a little of the new, and loads of creativity, passion and energy in this special 30th birthday production.

Opening the two-part programme are highlights from full-length works commissioned as part of Footnote’s Forte series over the last decade. Curated by Founding Director Deirdre Tarrant it shines a light on the massive contribution of New Zealand choreographers.

A new work from renowned choreographer Malia Johnston, in collaboration with AV Designer Rowan Pierce and current Footnote dancers, forms the second half. Johnston, who has made work for Footnote since 2000, makes sampling central to this creative, energetic and mesmerising blend of traceable and remembered histories. She draws on choreographic, visual and musical archives to pay homage to the rich history this company has accumulated. 

Don’t miss this milestone Footnote celebration!
