A NZ Dance Week partnership between DANZ + the Wellington Central Library.

Celebrate NZ Dance Week (NZDW) at the Wellington Central Library with a series of dance talks.

Fill your evenings with movement, music and intrigue! Amongst the books you will find some of Wellington’s finest performance artists talking about their craft and baring their divine talents.

Have you ever wanted to know what it takes to choreograph a work or compose music for dance? Are you interested in what the day to day looks like for a dancer or how they shake stage-fright? Or are you just simply curious about their current reading lists? Dancing Through the Pages is a unique opportunity to meet artists at the top of their game with the chance to ask them any burning questions you have about their art-form.

This talk series with a performance element is free and open to all audiences. Come along, sit back, relax and get your arts and culture fix!
