Footnote New Zealand Dance perform Tomorrow After All by Joshua Rutter. The company are fresh off the plane from Berlin, where they have been re-working Tomorrow After All especially for performance in galleries.

The choreographer describes how the work 'privileges sensation over sense. Take time to soak up the slowly evolving atmosphere, or return periodically to see what has changes, the choice is years'.

French for Rabbits is the project of New Zealand musician Brooke Singer and band. They formed in 2011, when Singer and guitarist John Fitzgerald began writing and recording lo-fi demos of ambient dream-folk in the small coastal township of Waikuku Beach.

Now Wellington-based, they are joined by drummer Hikurangi Schaverien-Kaa (Glass Vaults), and multi-instrumentalists Ben Lemi (Trinity Roots) and Penelope Esplin (Prophet Hens).
