The New Zealand Dance Company

Get ready to be swept away by a mesmerising performance by The New Zealand Dance Company (NZDC) at 7pm on Opening Night as they present an excerpt from IMPRINT. Fresh off the heels of standing ovations and sold-out shows across Europe and Aotearoa New Zealand, IMPRINT is part of the captivating double bill WHENUA, showcasing the unique creative voices of Aotearoa New Zealand. With moves that are as bold as they are beautiful, this act explores our bond with the land and the stories that make us who we are.
