Footnote NZ Dance presents The Movement

Rosie Tapsell in Artifact, one of four dances in The Movement
1 May 2021 to 19 Jun 2021
7pm to 8.45pm
Footnote New Zealand Dance is on the road with its national tour of The Movement – four new dance works aiming to provoke positive change in some of the big challenges facing the world.
Event type: 
$25 adults, $15 students, concession, seniors
In centres around Aotearoa


Each of the works in The Movement will consider a different issue that has importance to each of the choreographers: the ever-rising tide, the future of biotech, an acknowledgement of painful experiences and our collective approach to change.

These are explored by combining powerful performances by Footnote’s stellar company dancers alongside thoughtful narration.

Footnote general manager Richard Aindow says the company is excited to provide a platform to open up important conversations through dance.

“We love inspiring people all across Aotearoa and we're excited for our incredible company members to finally be able to perform these dance works in fourteen towns and cities between Invercargill and Auckland."

Founded in 1985, Footnote is Aotearoa’s longest-running contemporary dance company. Almost every notable dancer and choreographer has worked with Footnote during their career and The Movement is the latest in a powerful kaupapa of bold new work by New Zealand artists.
