New Zealand’s leading contemporary dance company Black Grace is back in the United States by popular demand following their successful 2008 tour.
Choreographer Neil Ieremia imbues Black Grace with an explosive mix of rhythm, spirit and energy. His work has received critical acclaim throughout the Company’s extensive international tours to North America, Canada, Japan, Australia, New Caledonia and Europe.
Delivering a three-part program, Black Grace is bringing the best repertoire from its 15 year existence including Minoi, a signature work based on the fusion of Samoan and western contemporary dance styles; and excerpts from Surface and Gathering Clouds, Ieremia’s newest work which responds to controversial claims made in a paper stating that Pacific Islanders are a drain on New Zealand’s economy.
This performance is made possible by the W. Ford Schumann ‘50 Endowment for the Arts and the Lipp Family Fund for Performing Artists.
