Local award-winning integrated dance company Touch Compass share the stage with Second Echo Ensemble (Tasmania) in a delightful double bill featuring ‘Spring!’ a mesmerising aerial work from their 15th anniversary season and the heartfelt work ‘The Company I Keep’ by Second Echo.
Touch Compass is New Zealand’s only professional integrated contemporary dance company, whose performances include dancers with and without disability. A Creative New Zealand Recurrently Funded Arts Organisation, the company has won national and international acclaim for its ground-breaking performances.
Spring! Is an exciting aerial bungy work choreographed by Artistic Director Catherine Chappell for the company’s recent acclaimed 15th anniversary season of Run! Slip! Spring!
The Company I Keep takes the audience on a 40-minute journey through the sensations and emotions that we share when we dress for a first date, prepare for a party, argue with parents or simply share a quiet moment with someone we care for. A heartfelt and enriching journey celebrating relationships as they begin, develop and keep.
Second Echo is jointly managed by the Tasmanian Theatre Company and Cosmos Recreational Services to provide a highly creative environment for young people with intellectual disabilities in which they can work in a professional environment with other young theatre artists and experienced directors and designers.
The Company I Keep is the creation of internationally renowned writer for young people’s theatre, Finegan Kruckemeyer. Kruckemeyer was instrumental in forming the ensemble and this is his fourth work with Second Echo. We are delighted to be able to bring this acclaimed production to Auckland for the group’s first international tour, and we are very grateful to the Tasmanian Government for making this possible.
This project is funded through the Tasmanian Government through Arts Tasmania.
