The DANZ season of Limbs@40

Limbs@40 celebrates the founding by Chris Jannides in 1977 of groundbreaking New Zealand modern dance company Limbs, whose compelling choreographic style and tenacity for refusing to be ignored put both them and contemporary dance on the map across New Zealand.

This re-embodying of some of their most iconic works features choreography developed for the Limbs repertoire by resident dancer/choreographers Douglas Wright (MNZM, Arts Laureate), Mark Baldwin (OBE, Artistic Director of the prestigious Rambert Dance Company in London), and MaryJane O’Reilly (QSM).

Knee Dance and Quartet by Wright; Poi, Talking Heads and Moth by O’Reilly and Melting Moments by Baldwin, are brought to life on stage by Years 2 & 3 and post-graduate students from the New Zealand School of Dance and Unitec Performing and Screen Arts Programme.


Limbs@40 is part of a multi-day celebration during Tempo 2017 which acknowledges and commemorates Limbs Dance Company’s legacy and influence in New Zealand.
