Strasbourg 1518. A city on the brink. The triple threat of escalating inequality, rampant misogyny and a devastating drought threaten to break the town in two. When a lone woman steps out of her house and begins to dance, everyone is bewildered. But within days, hundreds more have followed her lead. As the authorities invent ever more bizarre ways to resolve this new crisis, the city falls one by one into a delirious hypnosis of a real-life dance with death.
Borderline Arts Ensemble are back their NZ Festival show Strasbourg 1518, exploring the true events of a dance plague from the middle ages. With themes of infection and mania, this gripping dance-theatre work couldn’t be more relevant! We need performers for our community chorus who open the show on stage with NZ dance legend Michael Parmenter! No prior dance or performance experience is needed, the community chorus will be taught their choreography by Michael Parmenter and Lucy Marinkovich.
SHOW DATES: 23 – 28 March 2021 @ Circa Theatre
Tues – Thurs 6.30pm Fri – Sat 8pm Sun 4pm

Footnote New Zealand Dance will be presenting their interactive art/dance installation Street Trance in Cuba Dupa. A large scale human installation that fills the street with impactful coordinated movement, performers are drawn from local schools and community groups to move in sync alongside Footnote company members and the wider dance community. Fragmented mass participation and a shared experience across defined space; this is the joy inherent in Street Trance by Footnote New Zealand Dance. Developed by Swiss-based New Zealand choreographer Emma Murray, Street Trance explores transformation through repetition and over duration.
SHOW DATES: 27 – 28 March
