'The Cost of Arms and Legs' was performed at Studio One Toi Tu for Auckland Fringe Festival. The work was developed during the collective's studio residency at Toi Tu. The double bill show featured works by Bella Wilson 'Cha(order)s', and Brittany Kohler, Natasha Kohler - 'Rituals of Similarity'. The show won 'Best New Comers Award - Company' during Auckland Fringe Awards in March 2018.
Dance Plant Collective presents The Cost of Arms and Legs, a second collaborative endeavour. A ritual, in three slices, giving trust to natural discoveries and curiosity.
They present these slices between mind and magic, giving light to darkness and answers to no questions. They are each their own and own their slices. As we are, in similarity and unknown, finding space within boundaries and boundaries within space.
A wordplay, a movement play, and a look at the fallings into place within their art form. Dance Plant Collective present a look at our thoughts, our relationships, and the unknown.
Rituals of Similarity then went onto be performed at Auckland's Short & Sweet Festival in September 2018 and won the DANZ Choreographic Mentorship Award.
'The Cost of Arms and Legs' is available for touring from January 2020. Please get in touch for more details.
