Māori choreographer Louise Potiki Bryant and composer/AV designer Paddy Free (Pitch Black) created In Transit—a thoughtful work which is a vivid reflection of the traces left behind in the Māori ritual of encounter.
Stephen Shropshire (USA/Netherlands) created the company’s first international commission in a co- production with the Holland Dance Festival. Created in collaboration with composer Chris O’Connor (The Phoenix Foundation), The Geography of an Archipelago sees a trio of dancers exploring the emotions that accompany exile and belonging.
Powerful designs by Jo Kilgour (lighting) and Kasia Pol (set and costume) across all three works creates an immersive and integrated world for the audience to experience.
Receiving a 4 (out of 5) star review at the world’s most respected dance festival and excellent audience feedback in Europe and New Zealand, Lumina promises a great evening of high energy dance, visceral and charismatic music, and stunning design.
“Lumina revealed a depth of talent in every aspect of the production, with lighting, costumes and production matching the virtuosity of the dance works.” (DANZ)
