IYKYK - Kerikeri
Footnote New Zealand Dance presents IYKYK (If You Know You Know), a 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 - How do you win at the game of life? What are the rules of the end of the world?
Taranaki born Holly Newsome returns to the company to present the dance of life in 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 10 years based in Dja Dja Wurrung Country- Bendigo Victoria Australia.
Both choreographers are creating their works alongside lighting designer Elekis Poblete Tierney, and with an immersive sound design by Emi Pogoni.
“As always, Footnote New Zealand Dance must be congratulated … audiences can be confident of performances to admire, to ponder and to discuss.” - Mona Williams, DANZ
