Verse 2 is an exciting collection of the latest short works and excerpts from New Zealand’s leading Pacific contemporary dance company Black Grace. Choreographed by Founder and Artistic Director Neil Ieremia, Verse 2 is full of rhythm, energy and grace.
“A polished, pungent, bone-crunchingly physical and perfectly executed alchemy of music, muscle and motion.” - New Zealand Herald, 2010
Verse 2 features an eclectic soundscape including traditional Pacific music and body percussion as well as pieces by Jimi Hendrix, Johnny Cash, and Johann Sebastian Bach.
“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 art forms. The result was no cut-and-paste assemblage, but a new art form.” - Broad Street Review, Philadelphia, 2010
