Examining conversation through movement, this spectacular show of intriguing new choreography and technical proficiency is created by NZSD's final year contemporary dance students.
'On the Other Hand' is a development of the extremely popular New Zealand School of Dance Choreographic Season show that premiered in May with a sell-out season of nine performances. These new choreographers have collaborated with sound artist James Dunlop and Artistic Coordinator Victoria Colombus to build a fascinating multifaceted theatrical experience.
Having studied full time at the NZSD for the past three years, the students take turns as both choreographers and performers. Revealing one character's journey of self-discovery as the show progresses and the individual voices of its young protagonists, 'On the Other Hand' is dance that's impulsive yet enchanting.
