DANCE DANCED DANCING (2024), presented and choreographed by Josie Archer & Kosta Bogoievski, is an independent season of their full length commissioned work with Footnote NZ Dance company in 2021. For its debut in Tāmaki Makaurau, J&K are teaming up with Olivia McGregor, Tori Manley-Tapu, Xin Ji and Joshua Faleatua, alongside returning lighting designer, operator, and dancer, Tony Black

Brimming with punk-like energy, vitality, and passion, DANCE DANCED DANCING (2024) takes great pleasure and care with the improvisational and choreographic possibilities of contemporary performance. Dispersed among explosive, gentle, and virtuosic moments there includes a ritual for Gravity, a freestyle light solo, live GIF sequences, and a grand reveal that will leave you spellbound for the remainder of the show.

As the final leg of the DANCE DANCED DANCING tour this show is not to be missed! 

“A celebration of dance unbounded” - Megan Seawright, Theatreview

“A provocative, energetic delight.” - Claire O’Loughlin, Pantograph Punch

“This show has moved and excited me as no other dance performance has for many years.” - Dr. Marianne Schultz, DANZ

“What I think makes Archer and Bogoievski’s particular passion distinct is that their work directly engages with choreographic ontology, that is, they ask what is choreography, and what does it do?” - Julia Harvey, Theatreview
