    Siva

    Black Grace and Auckland Live proudly present Siva

     

    For twenty years the explosive and pioneering work of Black Grace has taken local and international audiences on an epic journey into the very best of Pacific Contemporary dance. To mark this milestone, prolific choreographer Neil Ieremia brings the large scale new work Siva to the ASB stage for two shows only on November 6 and 7.

     

    Created especially to mark Black Grace’s 20th anniversary and inspired by iconic Black Grace works such as Minoi, Surface and Vaka, Siva – which is Samoan for dance – is a percussive and strikingly beautiful work, rich in imagery drawn from our collective consciousness, re-imagined and re-contextualised in acknowledgement of our ever-changing world.

     

    After 20 years at the helm of arguably our most successful dance company, Ieremia has brought together a formidable team of internationally recognised designers and artists to celebrate what is a remarkable achievement by anyone’s standards.

     

    In collaboration with Melbourne-based lighting designer Paul Lim, visual artist Simon Barker (Lotech), designer Peter Langford, Cambodian-based visual artists Peap Tarr and Lisa Mann, along with fashion designer extraordinaire Lindah Lepou, Ieremia takes us to a new place with the unmistakeable power and energy that we have come to know as Black Grace.
