From the creative brilliance of Arts Laureate Ross McCormack comes a darkly cinematic new work performed by renowned national dance company, Footnote New Zealand Dance.

The Clearing is a dance-theatre work inspired by the mysterious energy that exists within forests, hollows and hills, and the supernatural stories we tell ourselves about these spaces. Set against a compelling score by acclaimed sound designer Jason Wright, the occupants of The Clearing are caught, sheltered and threatened within an otherworldly terrain. Here, in this precarious environment, they wrestle with the elements and with each other.

Like a beautifully shot, indie thriller film, The Clearing overflows with vivid imagery and mesmerising performances.

“An absorbing piece of dance-theatre.” - Dr Ian Lochhead, The Press

“Every dancer is beautifully controlled, totally committed, and clearly connected to the piece and to each other.” - Kerri Fitzgerald, DANZ

“Footnote... can place this work on the world stage.” - Kerri Fitzgerald, DANZ

Presented by Nelson Arts Festival.
Proudly supported by Creative New Zealand.
