A Murmuration

Bianca Hyslop and dancers from The New Zealand Dance Company Influenced by the natural world and patterns in nature, A Murmuration asks the viewer to acknowledge, feel and breathe the beauty evoked when there is harmony with each other and our environment. Performed by four dancers with an original score byRowan Pierce.


Taane Mete (Okareka Dance Company) Inspired by the first inhalation of breath – this fundamental action that begins at birth and ends at death signifies earthly existence in this world. This new solo is an exploration of the complexities at a cellular level of how movement is developed and enhanced through breathe. Creative designers Vanda Karolczak (lighting) and Paul McLaney (music) collaborate withMete for the premiere of this new work.
