A double-bill of exceptional new dance work

CONTRAST is the combination of two distinct choreographic voices, Sarah Foster-Sproull (Auckland, New Zealand) and Emma Murray (Bern, Switzerland).

Sarah Foster-Sproull’s Super Ornate Construct invites you into a cut out world. A man stands alone with his thoughts while carefully placed scenes morph around him. With musical composition by Andrew Foster, this energetic new work vibrates with rich imagery and original sound.

Melding, merging, blurring. In Participation Murray considers how we are built up and subsequently undone by those around us. Swiss sound designer, Till Hillbrecht, provides a musical backdrop to this exploration of first encounters and layered identities. 

Footnote company dancers Tyler Carney, Joshua Faleatua, Georgia Beechey-Gradwell, Anu Khapung and Adam Naughton will bring to life these two exploratory, thoughtful and probing new works. 

Suitable for all ages with adult supervision (occasional strong language).

As a national arts organisation based in Wellington, they present the energy of dance as a real reflection of our New Zealand identity in theatre, schools and the community. Footnote has, at its heart, a determination to create a secure, sustainable professional company of excellent dancers who can respond to the innovation and ideas of contemporary choreographers wanting to communicate through the most universal art form – dance.
