NZ Dance Company performs Lumina in Auckland


Featuring Brouhaha: choreographer Malia Johnston, composer Eden Mulholland, AV designer Rowan Pierce; In Transit: choreographer Louise Potiki Bryant, composer/AV designer Paddy Free; The Geography of an Archipelago: choreographer Stephen Shropshire, composer Chris O’Connor.

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).
