SHORT + SWEET DANCE
Rituals of Similarity
Show 2 | 14 – 15 September
We are bonding, we are testing our mutual instincts, we are questioning normality. This is in response to our stereotype. This is eye contact, breathing, knowing. This is an introduction, a rivalry, a teamwork. This is nurturing, curiosity, sameness. This is identical, contrasted, anonymous.
Choreographers Brittany Kohler & Natasha Kohler
Independent Dance Company Dance Plant Collective
Dance Plant Collective is an Auckland based contemporary dance collective, founded in 2016 by six Unitec Dance graduates. Their vision is to create politically challenging and transformative performance work grounded in an ecological framework, and their desires lie in collaboration and nurturing community. Dance Plant have so far developed and performed three full-length works, another highlight being their involvement in multidisciplinary collaborations during their time as artist residents at Studio One Toi Tū. Brittany Kohler and Natasha Kohler are two members of Dance Plant, who trained in and studied dance together before working together as part of this collective.
