Crows Feet Dance Collective is presenting a danced version of Carmina Burana on Saturday November 13th at Te Raukura, Paraparaumu and Sunday 5 December at the Globe Theatre in Palmerston North. (Wellington date postponed).
This show will explore Carl Orff’s famous cantata for orchestra and chorus - with a contemporary twist. The wheel of fortune, the power of luck and fate has never been so relevant - in our new Covid world.
The Crows Feet team under the Direction of Jan Bolwell will also explain how they work collaboratively across the region to create these large works.
Featuring forty-five dancers from the four Crows groups - Wellington, Kapiti Coast, Lower Hutt and Palmerston North, the dance style is contemporary with movement vocabulary references to European folk dance, connecting to the music’s medieval themes.
