For the first time, Christchurch's Rebound Dance Company and well-known Wellington company Crows Feet come together to perform in this years festival with a series of short works by both companies.
Rebound presents new works by Fleur de Thier, Tracy Scott and Andrew Shepherd with a short film by Fleur de Thier and Sean James included in the programme. The company recently performed in Wellington to rave reviews and this will be another entertaining show celebrating the diversity of the company of mature and experienced performers.
Crows Feet Dance Collective, Wellington's unique dance company for mature performers, presents three very different works.
'Quintet' to Faure's stirring and relentless 'AllegroMolte', from his quartet in G Minor is a real endurance test for the dancers.
'Leaving Home' is director Jan Bolwell's tribute to her great, great grandmother who left Scotland for the Antipodes in 1843. The music is by New Zealand composer, David Downes.
The third work is excerpts from their latest show 'Sea of Love: Songs of the 60s and 70s', where the dancers cavort to the music of their youth.
