Sparked by an interest in forging connections between Aotearoa’s dance and music

communities, Tempo has invited some of the country’s most inventive young

choreographers to respond to the music of iconic NZ singer/songwriter Aldous Harding.

Zahra Killeen-Chance, Josie Archer and Kosta Bogoievski will present two dynamic and

visually-arresting short works in the double bill, Dances with Aldous.

 

Working in collaboration with Steven Park (costume designer for Harding’s The Barrel music

video), Josie and Kosta’s offering promises to vividly echo Aldous’s world. Their

performance will meet Aldous at the nexus of day-to-day mundanities, dark humour, and that

eerie feeling you get when you’ve dropped to introspective depths. In duet form, Josie and

Kosta will evoke Aldous Harding’s music video aesthetic, and their memories of seeing her

perform live.

 

For Zahra, a triad of female dancers will embody the elemental power of Harding’s artistry.

Symbolized by their costumes of white, red and black, together they will connote the light of

joy, the blood of life, and the shadow of mystery. Award-winning Australian dancer Ella-Rose

Trew (Co3) will join seasoned New Zealand dancer Sarah Knox (Footnote) and emerging

ballet star Ariana Hond (Melbourne City Ballet).

 

Dances with Aldous promises to summon the haunting and momentous powers of this

extraordinary musician. An important occasion for music lovers and fans of dance alike, this

double bill show will be theatre like we haven’t quite seen it before.

 

NZ Music Double Bill: Dances with Aldous is presented with permission and support from Aldous Harding’s management team. Many thanks to Martin at Associated London Management. Thanks also to Colleen Davis at APRA.
