DanceBox Film Exhibition. Come and view our short films which tell our dancer's personal and moving stories, via performance.

Touch Compass artistic director Catherine Chappell says DanceBox brings diverse dancers together to exchange and share stories in a creative and physical way.

The project uses dance, performance and film to shine the light on “those profound moments when life reveals itself to the person living it – often changing everything from that point on”.

The project is part of the company’s philosophy of questioning who can dance and bringing dance out of the theatre and into people’s lives.

“We want people to join in the conversation and comment on the different works.”

The workshops to make the films included dancers from Touch Compass’ community class working with the company’s professional dancers and themes for the dance works are around ‘something that changed my life’.

Our latest short film, 'Flipped, my body stopped to let me remember' is currently being shown on the Air NZ in-flight entertainment programme. Flipped is a journey of one young woman’s abiding love of dance. Midway through a Bachelor of Dance Renee Ball became completely paralysed. Initially unable to communicate Renee spent five years embracing her new normal.

Prepare to be inspired, uplifted and entertained.
