Three artists commissioned by Auckland Theatre Company to develop new performance work as they launch their 25th anniversary season.
Malia Johnston, Kate Parker and Katie Wolfe each present a new work in the early stages of development over a festival style weekend.
Moon is the NEW WORK by artists from MOTH. Moon is created in collaboration with Eden Mulholland and Rowan Pierce. Itis a dance-theatre piece inspired by the night sky.We now use our mobile phones to navigate and connect, but the cosmos was the original internet guiding and connecting explorers, dreamers, scientists and hunters. We have invited 9 young writers to contribute their own words as starting points for the work. We invite the audience to add their voice and responses to Moon.
We will keep you posted for the next installment of MOON

PERFORMANCE OF AIR
Performance of air is the working title for a piece in development that explores the nature and physics of aerial objects from a choreographic and immersive perspective.
Performance of Air is funded by CNZ
A second development of the work will occur later in 2019.
Performance of air will become a multimedia immersive style performance event that utilises and harnesses the skills of aerial specialists in collaboration with dance artists. New and existing aerial apparatus will be explored with the notion of sustainment of physicality over a period of time. Live music, light and AV will feature strongly in the production design for the work.
The audience will witness aerial choreography from an immersive, atmospheric and social perspective.
Key Creative collaborators for the initial workshop include
Jenny Ritchie (Aerial movement designer and trainer)
