Trolleys

Sean Parker

The New Zealand Dance Company is proud to remount Shaun Parker’s TROLLEYS for its first performance in Aotearoa after it having toured the UK, Spain, Belgium, France, Malaysia, the Netherlands, and Australia. Winner of the Argus Angel Award (Brighton Festival, UK), TROLLEYS is a twenty-minute outdoor dance theatre work utilising five supermarket trolley and five exceptional NZDC dancers: Carl Tolentino, Chris Ofanoa, Chrissy Kokiri, Katie Rudd, and Xin Ji. Choreographed by Shaun Parker and set to a stunning orchestral score by composer Nick Wales, (Sydney Symphony, Sydney Dance Company, Sarah Blasko, SBS, ABC), the work creates a highly physical, extraordinary urban world incorporating high-octane contemporary dance, acrobatics, street dance, parkour and seemingly ordinary everyday objects – the trolleys.
