FOOTNOTE DANCE CO.
Footnote New Zealand Dance returns with IYKYK (If You Know You Know), an electrifying double-bill of contemporary dance works by choreographers Holly Newsome and Forest Kapo.
These two works present a game-like lens of viewing the human condition, posing questions like, ‘How do you win at the game of life?’ and ‘What are the rules of the end of the world?
Taranaki-born Holly Newsome choreographs the dance of life with Advance to Go. Queer, Indigenous performance artist Forest V Kapo (Te Atiawa, Ngāti Raukawa) explores how to save the world in Premonition, returning to Aotearoa after ten years based in Dja Dja Wurrung Country - Bendigo, Victoria, Australia. Both choreographers have created their works alongside lighting designer Elekis Poblete Teirney and with immersive sound design by Emi Pogoni.
IYKYK is presented as part of Hamilton Arts Festival Toi Ora ki Kirikiriroa in partnership with the Meteor Theatre.
