A poetic ode to our troubled world, As Night Falls is a beautiful new work choreographed by Artistic Director Neil Ieremia, which premieres in Auckland for a limited season at the Herald Theatre, from 1-5 November.
“As Night Falls is bold and bright like the colourful muumuu dresses worn by my mother without shame or ceremony. I had initially wanted this work to be the expression of my concerns and fears of the darkness that seems to be eroding the value of equality and human life. Instead, I feel compelled to respond with a contrasting beauty and physical vitality, musicality and hope. It is my offer of beauty for ashes.” - Neil Ieremia
As Night Falls sees the company embracing contemporary dance in its purest form, set to the timeless and passionate sound of Antonio Vivaldi.
