Showcase 17 is on the way, pairing the best contemporary choreographers with NZ’s brightest dance students to deliver the high quality contemporary dance that our audiences have come to expect.

We are pleased welcome the return of Charles Koroneho to the role of Adjunct Professor. Charles will work with the full cohort of students to activate the space and welcome our audience into it.

Unitec Lecturers Katie Burton & Paul Young continue their winning collaboration to develop a challenging new work for Unitec’s Year 1 dancers.

Coming to us via Edinburgh, exceptional Dancer/Choreographer Tamsyn Russell will work her Magic with Unitec’s Year 2 cohort. Tamsyn’s prolific career includes dancing for renowned choreographers Michael Parmenter (NZ), Janet Saxton (SCT) and producing her own acclaimed work including ‘Go Get 'em Kid’, new work in development, ‘Scene Stealer’.

Following a successful tour of dance theatre duet ‘Lick My Past’ NZ dance Luminary Kelly Nash will create exciting new work on our graduating Unitec Year 3 students. Kelly brings with her a wealth of experience from all corners of the dance industry and we are really excited to support her work. Kelly is currently creating ‘Atamira’ her first full length work with Atamira Dance Company to premiere late 2017.

Students from Unitec’s joint programme with the Beijing Dance Academy will showcase a new work created for them in China, and NZ Dance icon Michael Parmenter will present an intriguing excerpt from his epic new work ‘The Orpheus Project’, which will be premiered by The New Zealand Dance Company in 2018.
