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.


Streaming from Friday June 24 at 7.30pm (NZST) and available on demand to enjoy when and where you wish this Matariki long weekend, Night Light will leave you in awe of the talent and artistry brewing on the shores of Aotearoa New Zealand.

Available to watch online globally from 7.30pm on Friday June 24 (NZST) until midnight on Sunday June 26 (NZST).

This streamed performance and its digital tickets are delivered via Tikstream, and will work with most modern browsers, tablets and phones.
