Footnote Dance

A challenging new full length work from Footnote New Zealand Dance, The Status of Being by Berlin-based New Zealand choreographer Alexa Wilson creates three possibilities for our world in a dance piece presented in three shorter versions. In an effort to question our overall evolution, the pieces are each created to represent the state of our world based upon important events in history, the world today and possibilities for the future. The audience is directed to choose from the three performances which they think is past, present or future, as well as their favourite. In a provocative, satirical and layered approach to the fluctuation of our species, The Status of Being aims to find freedom and compassion in the questioning of power and the value of understanding.

Through confrontation and humour, attention is focussed on the power of choice within ourselves over to how we respond to the world, an awakening of decision-making inherent within our own views, and empowering a sense of responsibility for ourselves and our planet. Ultimately, The Status of Being questions an engineered sense of control: how much choice do we really have in our given systemic choices?
