Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Tuesday 24th–Wednesday 25th July 2012
Direct from a sell-out tour of Germany, Black Grace returns to Aotearoa to present a compelling new work, WAKA, by internationally celebrated choreographer Neil Ieremia.
"Powerfully elegant and possessed technical finesse of almost archaic rawness."
Nahe-Zeitung, Germany 2012
Exploring the idea of a raft as a metaphor for hope, WAKA is inspired in part by "The Raft", video installation by Bill Viola, as well as a response to "The Arrival of the Maoris in New Zealand" by Louis J. Steele and Charles F. Goldie 1898, influenced by Theodore Géricault's famous "The Raft of the Medusa" depicting the terror of a shipwreck.
"Intensive dance imagery - a powerful demonstration of strength and battle readiness." Mainpost, Schweinfurt, Germany 2012
