This Fragile Planet (Auckland, New Zealand)
15 Feb 2019 - 1 Jan 2022
The New Zealand Dance Company (NZDC) presents an indoor or outdoor, community work that serves as a place making activation to delight the senses. The site-specific and innovative approach of the performance speaks volumes in images, sound, and movement, to the vulnerability and beauty of this precious planet. This Fragile Planet is inspired by the delicacy of our ecosystems, our effect on mother earth, and the interactive power of art and nature colliding to create an environment that is ephemeral, magical, grand and dangerous.
Having completed one highly successful development workshop in 2017, the second exciting phase of its concept is ready to progress: the integration of you as an audience and local community participants. Creative collaborators include Artistic Director and Chief Executive of NZDC, Shona McCullagh; Choreographer Malia Johnston (Founder and Creator, Movement of the Human & Choreographer, World of Wearable Arts); and NZDC dancers and guest actors. Expect unforgettable characters to take you on a profound and humorous journey utilising the power of imagination and connection. This Fragile Planet will leave the audience stimulated, provoked and inspired.
