Dance Plant Collective


Dance Plant Collective are a contemporary dance collective based in Auckland. Since their formation in 2016, Dance Plant have created a diverse repertoire of works, ranging from short pieces to full-length dance theatre shows which have been presented in a variety of venues across Aotearoa and Australia. Dance Plant are passionate about the intersection of light and movement, and are excited to be a part of Tūrama’s inaugural festival.

A Brief Encounter


Choreographed by Dance Plant Collective’s Tui Hofmann, A Brief Encounter is a commentary on human existence. Drawing inspiration from the statues within Albert Park, it closely examines human relationships, weaving between the investigation of simply living, sentience and the impermanence of mankind. Like time in constant motion, A Brief Encounter is an ever-changing movement poetry, showcasing human connection, lit from within. 

This work has been created by Dance Plant Collective in collaboration with dancers Bella Wilson, Kit Reilly, Terry Morrison, Emma Cosgrave, Ariana Hond, and Villa Junior Lemanu.
