Dry Spell

May 6 @ 7:30 pm 9:00 pm

Fantasy and reality collide in Dry Spell by Footnote New Zealand Dancea cerebral spiralling ascension of desire, decadence and disgrace. 

Performed by Footnote New Zealand Dance’s team of electrifying dance artists, with choreography by trailblazing choreographer Rose Philpott and sound design by acclaimed composer Eden Mulholland, Dry Spell is a performance for thrill-seekers. 

Choreographer Rose Philpott is excited to share this new, layered contemporary dance work

“The mind can play tricks on us,” says Philpott. “Especially when we are faced with finality. Dry Spell is a portal into the privacy of the inner self and also to some dark corners of the universe. Combining physical theatre, dance, textile and spatial design, it is a peephole through which we see ourselves under the immense pressure of collapse and how the human spirit might resist. Some of us have a drink, some of us dance, I don’t think there is necessarily a right way.”

Teetering on an edge of hallucination and reality, Dry Spell is a full-length movement work that taps into the collective and individual needs of the heart, body and soul.
