Each year, Tempo honours the achievements of one special person who has made a significant contribution to dance in New Zealand. This year, we are very excited to celebrate the life and career of Russell Kerr (ONZM, QSM). Due to unforeseen circumstances, the Honouring celebration as part of Tempo Dance Festival 2018 in Auckland had to be cancelled.
In lieu of a live event, Tempo and the NZ Dance Festival Trust board have created a digital honouring, highlighting some of Russell's many achievements through photographs and archival footage, plus personal video tributes by some of Russell's closest friends and colleagues.
