%0A Founded in 2011, The New Zealand Dance Company is Aotearoa’s* freshest dance company with a fervent, long-term vision to create a permanent, high calibre, national contemporary dance company to represent New Zealand both nationally and internationally. Now in Luxembourg for the first time following appearances at Holland Dance Festival and Théâtre National de Chaillot in Paris, this young and innovative company will perform three individual pieces, which promise to be an evening of versatile, technical, energetic and gutsy dance.%0A%0ARecognised as one of New Zealand’s finest and internationally acclaimed dance artists, Ross McCormack’s Matter is a powerful work inspired by several multi-disciplinary artists. In this mythological yet futuristic work, questions of purpose, indecision, and human obsession with order are contemplated within a surreal world of poles designed and constructed by McCormack, appearing as spear-like plinths forcing the space apart. With sound by Jason Wright and lighting design by Jo Kilgour this work is starkly powerful. Ross is the recipient of the 2015 Creative New Zealand Choreographic Fellowship.%0A%0AChoreographer KIM Jae Duk’s quartet Sigan ( Time ) draws from the dual themes of meditation and attack, with a dynamic score created by Jae Duk and featuring traditional Korean drum and gong instruments: jang-gu, kkwaenggwari and jing within a contemporary composition. Jae Duk’s works have been described by critics as attention grabbing, refreshing and innovative.%0A%0ARenowned award-winning Australian choreographer, dancer and director Stephanie Lake presents If Never Was Now. Described by Australian critics as “eccentric and whimsical with a playful, riotous edge … urgent and brilliantly unpredictable”, the work is a surreal hive of buzzing activity reflecting the beauty and brutality of the natural world. Having won many awards and accolades, Lake is one of the world’s most innovative choreographers of her time.%0A%0A*Mãori name for New Zealand%0A
