Dance Plant Collective is a contemporary dance-theatre company based in Tāmaki Makaurau, Aotearoa (Auckland, New Zealand). Our vision is to create politically challenging and transformative performance work and the roots of our practice are planted in a desire to nuture community, honour the body as a locus of understanding and uphold the interconnectedness of all things. Co-founded in late 2016, Dance Plant offers a unique collaborative practice inspired by the genius of rhizome ecosystems. We embrace both absurdity and authenticity, trusting the spontaneous cross-fertilisation of view-points to produce startling new material staged in equally surprising spaces.
Dance Plant Collective have shared our award-winning, sold-out performances throughout New Zealand and Australia. We regularly offer collaborative opportunities through a community-based approach within our work.
