Stunning Contemporary Dance from New Zealand's Black Grace
Donít miss an exhilarating performance by New Zealandís leading contemporary dance company, Black Grace. The company was founded in 1995 by visionary choreographer Neil Ieremia, who draws from his Samoan and New Zealand roots to create innovative dance works that reach across social, cultural and generational barriers. Black Graceís dances are highly physical, uniquely beautiful and immensely powerful. For this Visions and Voices signature event, Black Grace will perform original works that address Polynesian identity, fuse traditional Samoan dance with contemporary western styles and much more—their every movement imbued with fierce, raw elegance. The event will be held on Saturday, February 21, at 7 p.m. in Bovard Auditorium. For more info, click here.
