The Absurdity of Humanity

The New Zealand Dance Company presents its most provocative and poetic tour yet, The Absurdity of Humanity, with works by Ross McCormack (Matter)and Lina Limosani (Whispers from Pandora’s Box) in a stageblazing double bill.

"The Absurdity of Humanity is a powerful and compelling commentary on the human condition and it should not be missed."- Dione Joseph, NZ Herald.

Matter by Ross McCormack, one of New Zealand’s finest and internationally acclaimed dance artists, is a highly anticipated work where questions of purpose, indecision, and environment are contemplated within a surreal world of poles, appearing as spear-like plinths forcing the space apart.

Whispers from Pandora’s Box by Australia’s Lina Limosani is a theatrical exposition on the dichotomy of good and evil. With a score created from mashed up film soundtracks and absurdist scores, Elizabethan-period inspired costumes, David Lynch style elements, and shockingly timed fight sequences.
