Shaun Parker's

The New Zealand Dance Company Proudly Presents
Shuan Parker's Trolleys

The New Zealand Dance Company proudly remounted Shaun Parker’s Trolleys for its first performance in Aotearoa after touring the UK, Spain, Belgium, France, Malaysia, the Netherlands, and Australia. Its New Zealand premiere was at Auckland Live‘s Summer in the Square.

Winner of the Argus Angel Award (Brighton Festival, UK), Trolleys is a twenty-minute outdoor dance theatre work utilising five supermarket trolleys 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.

Trolleys was proudly supported by the Countdown Christmas Food Rescue Appeal. Countdown donates more than $3.5 million of food each year to The Salvation Army and local food banks through its Food Rescue programme, including $90,000 worth of groceries at Christmas to help the growing number of New Zealanders registering for food assistance. Customers can contribute to the Christmas Food Rescue Appeal by making a food donation in store at their local Countdown during the Christmas period or online at foodbank.org.nz.
