Footnote Dance presents a captivating new season of the successful Forte Series, with a great line-up of new thoughts and curious choreographies.
Each work in Forte Series 2012 responds to the individual ‘curiosity’ of choreographers while they explore space, site and movement in idiosyncratic ways. Michael Parmenter in 'Absence' is delving deeper into his passion for tango, with music by the astonishing Eden Mulholland. Lyne Pringle is looking at New Zealand as a 'Beautiful Prison' using iconic music by Wayne Mason's 'Nature'. Kristian Larsen is working again with Sam Hamilton to further explore his methodology and ideas towards 'A Common Language'. Company dancer Lucy Marinkovich presents her first work 'Vile Bodies' on the company, with ideas derived from pop culture. Maria Dabrowska’s work 'Rabbit Brain Terrain' is a duo for two men to Strike percussionist and composer Takumi Motokawa. Christchurch choreographer Fleur de Their’s proposal for the company explores the ideas of being rooted to one place, now more than ever relevant, as the quakes have made it very clear that “this is home” in 'And Feet Firmly Planted'.
Directed by Deirdre Tarrant, and performed by the wonderful Footnote dancers – Manu Reynaud, Emily Adams, Lucy Marinkovich, Olivia McGregor, Alice Macann and Levi Cameron.
These dances will be performed at The Boatshed and Museum Hotel in the waterfront precinct.
