She debuts her latest work SLIP; working with frequent collaborator, composer Russell Scoones, who currently works at Raukatauri Music Therapy Centre. Dancers write their greatest hits, dress up, dress down and dance out their songs and between the flying and falling, the scenes of suspension expose the intimacy of support and the possibilities of surrender.
Anchoring the trilogy of performances is the return of Suzanne Cowan’s highly acclaimed Grotteschi, which the NZ Herald cited as “the standout highlight of Tempo 08’s opening week….”. The enthralling duet, the gothic horror tells the story of a spider woman and her “feeding” habits, both using and devouring her acolyte, combining riveting movements with dramatic lighting to embrace a range of tempo and mood changes.
Challenging perceptions about who can dance, Touch Compass celebrates the creative talents that diverse artists bring to this through provoking season.
