"For by Four" offers a unique glimpse at how New Zealand's contemporary dance future is evolving. Four choreographers have been paired up with four graduating contemporary dance students to create new works. This year marks 55 years since the New Zealand was founded. The anniversary provides the perfect backdrop against which to showcase both the present and the future of the School's creative talent. Innovation remains the lifeblood of the School. NZSD graduates, Toa Paranihi, Olivia McGregor, Kit Reilly and Brydie Colquhoun each provide a springboard from which current third-year contemporary dance students can take flight.
