This exhibition is a tribute to the artists and people who have contributed to the growth of The New Zealand Dance Company.

John McDermott was appointed the Company Photographer at the inception of The New Zealand Dance Company, spearheaded by Artistic Director and now Chief Executive Shona McCullagh. Shona regarded the capturing of the dancers’ and choreographers’ process as a vital part of the Company’s work.

Over the years, an extraordinarily intimate collection of photographs of the Company in rehearsal have been gathered, producing an astonishing record of the not often seen process of dance creation.  This historical record of images is accompanied by a book, process by John McDermott, created in partnership with NZDC with a foreward essay written by Michael Parmenter.

Focusing as it does particularly on the creative process of dance alone, that the tension, even the paradox that exists between dance and photography, between a temporal process and the captured moment, is brought to the fore.” — Michael Parmenter, Choreographer.

NZDC premieres their latest production The Absurdity of Humanity here at Q Theatre 24 – 27 August.  Artistic Director Shona McCullagh couples the striking works of Ross McCormack (Matter) and Lina Limosani Whispers from Pandora’s Box) to form a stageblazing trans-Tasman double bill.

Proceeds of your purchase will provide much needed support of the Charitable Trust that anchors all of the work of  The New Zealand Dance Company – onstage, behind the scenes and within our heartfelt Youth & Community Engagement Programme, serving ages 3 – 93.
