Tor Colombus | Eddie Elliott

The New Zealand Dance Company (NZDC) invites you to indulge your senses in a complementary double bill by two dynamic New Zealand choreographers who bring to life an ancient sequence of nature and an environment that exists between fiction and reality.

First, float through time and space, observing nature’s mysterious golden spirals in NZDC Artistic Director Tor Colombus The Fibonacci. Then, ground down with feeling in the world premiere of emerging Māori choreographer Eddie Elliott’s Uku - Behind the Canvas, where confronting storytelling is at its most raw.
