Lumina features three incomparable pieces of contemporary dance that explode off the stage in a “ground-breaking” and “hypnotic” (NZ Herald) spectacle of light, sound and movement.
Artistic Director Shona McCullagh tasked the three dynamic creative teams with creating a world where light was the connective force of the programme. Featuring some of NZ’s finest choreographers, composers and designers, Lumina is a rich world “presenting a veritable explosion of fantastically illuminated spaces, images and superbly performed contemporary dance.” (NZ Herald)
Malia Johnston (WOW Arts Stage Director, Principle Choreographer 2002-2014) and her creative partners composer Eden Mulholland and AV Designer Rowan Pierce create Brouhaha; a bold, loud and energetic world in which the dancers are explorers and artful unravelers of rawness and refined beauty.
Louise Potiki-Bryant (winner of the Harriet Friedlander Residency 2014) and AV Designer/ Composer Paddy Free (Pitch Black) create In Transit; a thoughtful work, which is a vivid reflection of the traces left behind in the Māori ritual of encounter.
Stephen Shropshire (USA/Holland) in collaboration with composer Chris O’Connor (The Phoenix Foundation) creates an international commission in coproduction with the Holland Dance Festival. The Geography of an Archipelago sees a trio of dancers exploring the emotions that accompany exile and belonging.
Receiving a 4 (out of 5) star review at the world’s most respected dance festival and excellent audience feedback in Europe and New Zealand, Lumina promises a great evening of high energy dance, visceral and charismatic music and stunning AV design.
