Bridging Styles with Ufitia Sagapolutele
Bridging Styles is a platform for selected dance artists to engage in critical, cultural and social topics which apply to dance in Aotearoa and across the globe. The aim is to engage artists with questions which encourage them to talk about how their art form is developing and how it can transcend on to other styles while creating an understanding across the board.
