Sascha Perfect presents
New Dance Theatre from a promising new voice in New Zealand dance.
In Chimera the audience will experience a non-rational world where bodies shape shift from human to animal.
As time unfolds backwards, death enfolds life, allowing it to merge with the spiritual. Live music and vocals combine with a rich theatrical palette to create an atmospheric setting. Featuring Live music by Chris Prosser and an electronic soundtrack by Alex Mitcalfe Wilson. (aka Snowfield)
“Chimera is meditative dance theatre with a touch of the shamanistic. Inspired by the paintings of Martin Whittfooth.” Sascha Perfect – Director of Chimera
“Sascha Perfect weaves an intricate and delicate world where voice, live and recorded sound and movement co-exist in a natural and super-natural manner. She is a brave young voice on the scene.” Julia Milsom - Freelance Choreographer
“This is an artist who has significant potential and a very welcome contribution, for the landscape of New Zealand dance.” Toby Behan - Dance Reviews DANZ</em>
