Footnote New Zealand Dance present their electrifying contemporary dance production IYKYK (If You Know You Know).

Footnote New Zealand Dance returns to the Waikato with electrifying production IYKYK (If You Know You Know), a double-bill of contemporary dance works by choreographers Holly Newsome and Forest Kapo. These two works present a game-like lens of viewing the human condition – How do you win at the game of life? What are the rules of the end of the world?

Presented at The Meteor as part of the Hamilton Arts Festival, this is an action packed evening of world-class dance that you don’t want to miss.

Taranaki-born Holly Newsome choreographs the dance of life with Advance to Go. Queer, Indigenous performance artist Forest V Kapo (Te Atiawa, Ngāti Raukawa) explores how to save the world in Premonition, returning to Aotearoa after ten years based in Dja Dja Wurrung Country- Bendigo, Victoria, Australia.

Both choreographers have created their works alongside lighting designer Elekis Poblete Teirney and with an immersive sound design by Emi Pogoni.

“Two fully realized works on Darkness and Light were staged by Footnote. They were bold, assured, highly contrasting, youthful and compelling…All six dancers exhibited a heart felt felicity in movement and a disciplined interpretation of the soundscape. Forest Kapo’s mirthful, spirited, Celebration-of-Life, many-layered work, made coming to the theatre on a bleak Wellington night well worth the effort.” – DANZ

“nuanced and technically seamless.” – Theatreview

“delightfully punchy…wildly visceral and emotive” – Art Murmurs

“Satisfyingly full programming…Sophisticated and urgent” – Stuff
