“In a memorable performance, the thrilling and brilliantly executed New Zealand Company Black Grace integrated many aspects of modern dance with Samoan and South Pacific indigenous dance forms.  The result was no cut-and-paste assemblage, but a new art form.” - Broad Street Review, Philadelphia, 2010

Verses is the highly anticipated collection of new short works by Black Grace’s Founder and Artistic Director Neil Ieremia.

After receiving rave reviews and performing to thousands across North America and Canada, Black Grace is set to inspire, challenge and delight their home-country with this fresh new collection.
Inspired by words, lyrics, lines and verse, Ieremia brings an eclectic mix of his favourite pieces of music together with an exciting new movement vocabulary to create Verses.

With music ranging from hip-hop to country, Verses promises to be an evening of great dance not to be missed!

“A polished, pungent, bone-crunchingly physical and perfectly executed alchemy of music, muscle and motion.” - New Zealand Herald, 2010

“This new embodiment of Black Grace, it’s very best, deserves not just one viewing – but two, three or more!” - New Zealand Herald, 2010
