Discotheque; noun. A night club where dancing takes place. Are you ready?
Discotheque, winners of ‘Best in Fringe’ presents SUPER, NATURAL - a new dance work inspired by
dancing itself and the subtleties we all face in peak social situations. Act natural, be natural, super natural. Supernatural?
Six wāhine take to the dance floor bringing you a highly physical, quick witted dance/theatre work created under the co-direction of Holly Newsome and Elekis Poblete-Teirney. SUPER, NATURAL indulges the marriage of dance, rhythm, sound and lighting to transform an empty space for the evening in the hopes of entertaining a large force of people who may not usually find themselves immersed in dance culture.
We bring to you a visual feast full of colour and fierce movement, inspired by heavy dance anthems through the ages.
Discotheque is a project based dance company under the direction and choreography of Holly Newsome. The company was formed in 2016 and is now creating it’s 9th dance work thanks to the support of Creative New Zealand. Discotheque has gone on to win ‘Best in Fringe’, ‘Most Promising Emerging Company’ and ‘Momentous Movement’ awards for the Wellington Fringe Festival.
The company’s endmost goal is to be accessible to more than just a dance audience- we want to be crafty, calculated and leave you utterly entertained through intelligent sound, movement and technical marriages.
