WHAT IS IT ABOUT?
Black Grace, one of New Zealand's leading contemporary dance companies, performs a striking collection of short and full length works choreographed by founding artistic director Neil Ieremia. The work itself is highly physical, rich in the story telling traditions of the South Pacific, and expressed with raw finesse, unique beauty, and power. The company features some of New Zealand's finest dancers and has toured internationally to Europe, Japan, South Korea, Mexico, Australia, and New Caledonia. In 2004, Black Grace made its U.S. debut performing a sold out season at Jacob's Pillow Dance Festival, with a subsequent return to the Festival in 2005.
