The Red String Duet
This new work from Fleur de Thier follows her sold out season of ‘Tilt’ at the Christchurch Arts Festival.
‘The Red String Duet’ is a sumptuous, visual work exploring the space between movement. It is dance with human connection and sensitivity, following an impulse and reacting to the unknown.
This is an intimate work with striking imagery and beautiful in its fragility, contrasted by the industrial architecture of the performance space and strength of the contemporary dancers.
‘The Red String Duet’ is emotionally evocative and follows the reputation of de Thier’s previous works by taking the audience on a journey.
Minutes of Silence
We are collectively remapping our city. There is a strange sense of amnesia - what was where and what did it mean to us? Architecture holds our history and identity - so how do we commemorate our ghosts and create something future generations will remember us by?
‘Minutes of Silence’ is a bold and innovative short dance theatre work from acclaimed Christchurch Choreographer, Julia Milsom. The dancers construct and deconstruct a rotating house of memories, ghosts and histories. It is their memorial across time.
This double bill is a celebration of professional contemporary dance in Christchurch at its best.
