Parris Goebel is looking for singers and dancers between the ages of 16 - 18 years to join her at Expo 2020 Dubai
Parris Goebel wants to give the youth of New Zealand a chance to showcase their talents at the world’s greatest show.
Pop music’s most in demand choreographer, Parris Goebel is the woman behind Justin Bieber's ‘Sorry’ video and the choreography for Sam Smith’s ‘How Do You Sleep?’ and Rihanna’s ‘Savage X Fenty’ runway show. She is also the curator of New Zealand’s entertainment and cultural programme for Expo 2020 Dubai.
Under New Zealand’s theme of Care for People and Place, Parris has developed an entertainment programme celebrating New Zealand’s creativity, diversity and youth over the six months of Expo 2020 Dubai.
“I’m so excited to be able to give a chance for young New Zealanders to perform at Expo 2020 Dubai so we can show the world how talented we are. It’s an awesome opportunity for our youth and a chance to be part of something really amazing,” Parris says.
From New Zealand to Dubai, Parris Goebel’s ‘Voice of Youth’ will be an opportunity for singers and dancers between the ages 16-18 to perform at Expo 2020 Dubai in a show celebrating our youth through song, dance and spoken word.
The ‘Voice of Youth’ show will be directed by Parris herself, and performed at the World Expo in Dubai in January 2021.
The specially curated show will see up to 30 youth selected from around New Zealand to perform their authentic stories and connect with audiences to create memorable experiences for all.
