Lumina by Elizabeth Allan Direct from Germany and Holland to Whangarei and Mahurangi comes Lumina: a triple billing of shows that the New Zealand Dance Company says are ‘at the intersection of contemporary light, sound and movement’.
Artistic director Shona McCullagh lived in Leigh for nearly 10 years and says, “I love doing a show that one minute is headlining at the Holland Dance Festival and next performing on a school hall stage. And it’s always fun sharing what you are doing with your life with people you know.”
The three creative teams have each produced a world of light that is “wonderfully three-dimensional because of the integration of choreography”, says McCullagh. “You will feel this show rather than have any need to intellectualise it. It’s a good example of my belief that dance is the most beautifully truthful language of living.”
