The Seasons
Retouched

Sue Healey

Multi-award-winning choreographer, educator, filmmaker and installation artist, New Zealander Sue Healey presents The Seasons Retouched set to German-born British composer Max Richter’s Recomposed, a superb score reimagining Vivaldi’s Four Seasons. The Seasons Retouched draws on the idea of subtle and shifting sonic tides meeting the patterns and geometries of the choreography – images of the seasons and changing weather combine with the emotional physicality of the dancers.

Hailed as one of the most influential composers of his generation, electro-acoustic polymath Max Richter’s score will be played live by The Blackbird Ensemble, a 13-piece chamber group featuring virtuoso violinist Amalia Hall.

This work promises a rich aural and visual experience, heightened by the use of AV design by leading Auckland-based film, digital and design house Augusto.
