NEW ZEALAND

One of New Zealand’s leading contemporary dance companies, Black Grace brings its long-running, critically-acclaimed Verses series to regional Auckland.

To kick off its 25th Anniversary year, Black Grace celebrates with its hometown through a 10-centre tour of Tāmakai Makaurau with the next instalment of Verses.

Founding Artistic Director Neil Ieremia creates a collection of dance works, inspired by words, lyrics, lines and verse, set to an eclectic mix of his favourite pieces of music to create Verses.

“Startlingly fresh, full of invention and infectious exuberance.” The New York Times

“If the standing ovation is anything to go by, it’s clear that given the chance, contemporary dance, especially those created by Neil Ieremia, is a rewarding and even necessary experience for lovers of art.” – National Business Review.

“Black Grace … phenominal strength, stamina and spirit.” – NZ Herald
