Direct from the prestigious Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris, and following sold-out seasons and standing ovations in New Zealand, at the Holland Dance Festival and in Germany, The New Zealand Dance Company proudly presents one of its most sought-after and celebrated programmes— Lumina. Three incomparable pieces of contemporary dance explode off the stage in “ground-breaking” and “hypnotic” (NZ Herald) spectacles resulting in a “tour de force of dance, music and light” (DANZ).
Artistic Director Shona McCullagh tasked the three dynamic creative teams with creating a world where light was the connective force of the programme. Featuring some of The Netherland’s and New Zealand’s finest choreographers, composers and designers, Lumina is a rich world “presenting a veritable explosion of fantastically illuminated spaces, images and superbly performed contemporary dance” (NZ Herald)
New Zealand choreographer Malia Johnston and her long-standing creative partners, composer Eden Mulholland and AV designer Rowan Pierce created Brouhaha—a bold, loud and energetic world in which the dancers are explorers and artful unravelers of rawness and refined beauty, described as “a tour de force of dance, music and light.” (DANZ)
