Footnote New Zealand Dance

New Zealand’s longest-running contemporary dance company returns to Nelson with a stunning new work from internationally celebrated choreographer Ross McCormack.

Emerging from the creative brilliance of Ross McCormack, The Clearing is a full-length work performed by the five dancers of our renowned national dance company, Footnote New Zealand Dance. Taking inspiration from the impact of our carved out spaces, both natural and designed, The Clearing is set within an otherworldly terrain where a faint echo of reality exists.

Alluring and perplexing, the company’s compelling and exquisite dancers present a work that reverberates with a mysterious energy, stirring its inhabitants to test themselves against both the environment and each other.

“An enthralling night of contemporary dance.” DANZ

“An absorbing piece of dance theatre.” THE PRESS

“Footnote’s five dancers are an assured and cohesive ensemble …” NZ HERALD

“The Footnote dancers … command the space together with authority and commitment.” THEATREVIEW
