The New Zealand Dance Company and The Conch with Auckland Live proudly present

This Fragile Planet

Inspired by the delicacy of our ecosystems, our effect on mother earth, and the beauty of art and nature intertwining, This Fragile Planet explores the strength of intergenerational democracy and the power of regeneration across the natural world. 


In this dance theatre work of ‘artivism’, created through a collaboration between The New Zealand Dance Company (Artistic Director Shona McCullagh) and The Conch (Directors Nina Nawalowalo and Tom McCrory), with choreography by Ross McCormack, a cast of Aotearoa’s finest dancers, actors and singers embody the cycles of life on this earth through a profound montage of shared humanity and its endless ability to persevere through trial and tribulation.


Audiences are guided into this perpetual journey rooted in imagination, wonder, and love, and walk back into the present day with a renewed spirit of empowerment and connection, knowing that we are our ancestors’ wildest dreams.


Developed in partnership with Auckland Live.
