The New Zealand School of Dance (NZSD) is bringing the theatrical, curious and technically impressive contemporary dance show The Residents to Tempo this year. The Residents is a series of new works choreographed by third year students and inspired by their own eclectic backgrounds.

“This is an incredible opportunity for us to explore our creativity as dancers and develop our individual choreographic voice,” said NZSD student Tessa Hall.

The Residents is a feast for the senses, with a ‘dismantled’ set and costumes created by students of Toi Whakaari: NZ Drama School, enhanced by an evocative soundscape. You will come away from this dance show with a sense of intrigue and surreal images burnt into your memory.

Jeremy Beck, another student choreographer of The Residents, said his work takes the audience on a journey; “The most exciting thing about choreographing your own work, is being able to make imagination reality. I want people to take their own experience of it away with them”.

Students train at tertiary level at the NZSD for 2-3 years to become professional dancers. Choreographing their own work is a core aspect of the course and an essential skill for a career in contemporary dance. The School’s Choreographic Season shows the culmination of these three years of exploration into the art of choreography.
