The New Zealand Dance Company's Kiss the Sky will showcase works by three exceptional international choreographers from Aotearoa, Korea and Australia on the theme of the seasons, the southern sky and time, presented to coincide with the Matariki Festival.

Among them, Aotearoa's multi-award-winning choreographer Sue Healey will present a work The Seasons Retouched which touches on images of the seasons and changing weather set to contemporary composer Max Richter's Recomposed, score reimagining Vivaldi's Four Seasons.

Richter's score will be played live by The Blackbird Ensemble, a 13-piece chamber group featuring virtuoso violinist Amalia Hall. This work promises a rich aural and visual experience, heightened by the use of AV design by leading Auckland-based film, digital and design house Augusto.
