Thanks to support from Asia New Zealand Foundation and sponsorship from the China Cultural Centre, they are able to offer entry to all performances by koha (donation).

This is a very rare opportunity to see outstanding work by international and New Zealand artists with a simple donation on the door. They are over the moon to be able to present Hemispheres in this way.

A collision of artists from both sides of the Pacific Ocean: Hemispheres is an impressive international collaboration between the longest-running contemporary dance companies in New Zealand and in China. Hemispheres is headlined by Mass Solitude, an astounding new work choreographed by Sarah Foster-Sproull and performed by both companies.

Mass Solitude showcases the technical mastery of detailed movement that is a signature of Chinese dance companies, with the powerful physicality that New Zealand dancers are renowned for across the world. Adding to the evening of exceptional artistry is Elliptical Fictions, choreographed by New Zealander Zahra Killeen-Chance and excerpts from The Spring Tide, choreographed by Taiwanese artist WU Chien-Wei.

Note: The Saturday 1.30pm show will be a short programme and will include the work Mass Solitude as well as a Q&A session with the dancers from both companies.
