Exploring the openness of movement, the Innate series are process-driven works to take us into new spaces of discovery, disruption and connectedness.

NZDC proudly presents the Innate series. These exciting new residencies see the company collaborate with a diverse range of New Zealand choreographers to forge new synergies between artists, spaces, and communities. Each distinct work aims to provoke and discover—what is dance? How we do respond to the now?

Taking place throughout 2021, NZDC is joined by Claire O’Neil, Joshua Faleatua and Josie Archer and Kosta Bogoiveski for the first Innate works. See below for more details and stay tuned as more artists are announced.

A process-driven contemporary dance occupation of Monster Valley shop front on Auckland’s infamous K Road, this work by Josie Archer and Kosta Bogoievski celebrates the ‘making’ and ‘doing’ as a product itself. The performance scores, text and brainstorms are all part of the work as dance and choreography develops.

See details below to stop by and see what’s taking shape:

Combining dance and filmmaking, Fale is working alongside us to uncover richness at the intersection of movement and digital storytelling. As a NZDC ‘sustained residency’, Fale joins us at various moments throughout 2021 for ongoing collaboration and content creation.

Using research and play, Claire investigates the depths of the physical as well as exploring outside and beyond the expected. A new NZDC ‘sustained residency’, Claire joins us throughout 2021 for ongoing engagement and exchanges.
