For Twenty-Four years, the New Zealand International Arts Festival bringing World Class Arts entertainment from around the World and within New Zealand.
Since 1986, each Festival has offered a bold artistic programme of the highest quality, featuring theatre, classical and world music, opera, dance, jazz, family and free events, a literary programme and the visual arts.
Last Saturday, I was able to watch “Transport Exceptionnels”,a dance duet between man and machine as part of the New Zealand International Arts Festival.
Transcending spectacle and danger, dancer Philippe Priasso is paired with a mechanical digger in this astoundingly witty exploration of the traditional "dance for two".
I would say. “ A love affairs between Man and Machine, beyond boundaries”.
Despite the intense heat, Hundred of people watched the 20 minutes show, Transports Exceptionnels follows an intimate seduction initiated by Priasso.
Dominique Boivin’s choreography expands and redefines dance tradition and the use of outdoor space and digger.
Unfortunately, Priasso, or the digger driver, don’t want to talk to a blogger but if you are from large newspapers or network I bet, they will say,”yes”.
Over-all the show was great and superb. Here are some photos you want to check or Priasso itself.
I wish I could see other performances during the festival not only the free event.
What do you think Ms. SUSANA LEI’ATAUA?
