Be at the intersection of contemporary light, sound and movement.

Following sold out seasons and standing ovations at every show in Germany and at the prestigious Holland Dance Festival, The New Zealand Dance Company proudly returns with Lumina; a triple bill season of contemporary dance spearheaded by pioneers of artistic vision.

Artistic Director Shona McCullagh tasked the three dynamic creative teams with creating a world where light was the connective force of the programme. Featuring some of NZ’s finest choreographers, composers and designers, Lumina is a rich world “presenting a veritable explosion of fantastically illuminated spaces, images and superbly performed contemporary dance.” (NZ Herald)

Malia Johnston (World of Wearable Arts Stage Director and Principal Choreographer 2002-2014) and her long standing creative partners composer Eden Mulholland and AV Designer Rowan Pierce create Brouhaha; a bold, loud and energetic world in which the dancers are explorers and artful unravelers of rawness and refined beauty. “A tour de force of dance, music and light.” (DANZ Magazine)

Louise Potiki Bryant (winner of the Harriet Friedlander Residency 2014) and composer/AV designer Paddy Free (Pitch Black) create In Transit; a thoughtful work which is a vivid reflection of the traces left behind in the Māori ritual of encounter.

Stephen Shropshire (USA/Holland) creates the company’s first international commission in co- production with the Holland Dance Festival. Created in collaboration with composer Chris O’Connor (The Phoenix Foundation), The Geography of an Archipelago sees a trio of dancers exploring the emotions that accompany exile and belonging.

Receiving a 4 star review at the world’s most respected dance festival and excellent audience feedback in Europe and New Zealand, Lumina promises a great evening of high energy dance, visceral and charismatic music and stunning AV design.

Don’t miss Lumina on its North Island Tour this May.

“Lumina revealed a depth of talent in every aspect of the production, with lighting, costumes and production matching the virtuosity of the dance works.” Francesca Horsley (DANZ Magazine)
