An Immersive Dance Experience by Neil Ieremia
Neil Ieremia and renowned New Zealand Pacific Contemporary dance company BLACK GRACE, present THE ART OF BLACK GRACE 1/5 – an Immersive Dance Experience by Neil Ieremia (ONZM), supported by Creative New Zealand.
Due to unexpected shipping delays of essential components for the production, The Art of Black Grace 1/5 will now open on Sunday, November 20 at a new location Karanga Plaza, Wynyard Quarter.
Black Grace unveils its most ambitious, exhilarating creative project yet. The Art of Black Grace 1/5 is a state-of-the-art, first of its kind interactive dance experience. Part-performance, part-exhibition and part-archive, set in a non-contact environment that uses sophisticated technology to immerse audiences in the extraordinary world of Black Grace.
Enter the universe of The Art of Black Grace – a portable 360 degree, 15 meter diameter by 6 meter high ‘cylindrical structure’ situated in Auckland’s Karanga Plaza, Wynyard Quarter that accommodates up to 100 people. Designed so the audience feels as if they are within a sensory show as visuals and sounds are displayed on 288sqm of LED panels.
