The New Zealand Dance Company (NZDC) forges its stellar national and international reputation for powerful contemporary dance with Kiss The Sky, "a diverse magical experience" that "grabs your attention from start to finish" (DANZ).
Artistic Director Shona McCullagh showcases an Asian-Pacific constellation of original dance, music, and design, reflecting on the themes of nature and time.
Kiss The Sky combines the high-octane physicality of Korean choreographer and composer KIM Jae Duk in his work Sigan; the vibrant aesthetic of New Zealand's Victoria Columbus in her world premiere work The Fibonacci; and expands into a triple bill for the May leg of the tour with the powerhouse choreography of renowned Stephanie Lake in the eccentric and imaginative If Never Was Now for "an evening of sensory indulgence" (Theatreview).
With exceptional ”versatility, virtuosity and artistry” from the high-calibre NZDC dancers and “excellence of the design and production teams” (NZ Herald) Kiss The Sky will leave you dreaming for more.
