Experimental Dance Week Aotearoa 2019, curated by Alexa Wilson, runs February 4-9, 2019 at Basement Theatre with a Waananga Kanikani X opening as an intro into the week February 2-3rd at Auckland Old Folks Association.

A book about experimental New Zealand dance contributed to by up to 30 artists will also be launched during the live week to mark 20 years of this new movement of dance in and alongside the wider contemporary dance scene in Aotearoa.
