Black Grace, New Zealand's leading contemporary dance group.
For their Fringe debut, Black Grace presents a collection of short dance works spanning nearly 20 years including: the iconic Minoi - drawn from Samoan dance traditions and fused with western culture; Human Language (2nd movement) - the first Black Grace work to feature female dancers; and Mother Mother - a new work created for popular New Zealand band Fat Freddy's Drop.
With an eclectic soundtrack including original Pacific music, Jimi Hendrix and Johann Sebastian Bach, Black Grace is an evening of highly physical dance rich in the story-telling traditions of the South Pacific and expressed with raw finesse, unique beauty and power.
"A unique, captivating and dynamic style ... an exhilarating and extraordinary evening."
