A collision of artists from both sides of the Pacific Ocean: Hemispheres is an impressive international collaboration between the longest-running contemporary dance companies in New Zealand and in China. Hemispheres is headlined by Mass Solitude, an astounding new work choreographed by Sarah Foster-Sproull and performed by both companies. Mass Solitude showcases the technical mastery of detailed movement that is a signature of Chinese dance companies, with the powerful physicality that New Zealand dancers are renowned for across the world. Adding to the evening of exceptional artistry is Elliptical Fictions, choreographed by New Zealander Zahra Killeen-Chance and excerpts from The Spring Tide, choreographed by Taiwanese artist WU Chien-Wei.
