Footnote New Zealand Dance presents

Dry Spell

by Rose Philpott

30 APR 2022 — Dance





ASB Waterfront Theatre


70 minutes



Fantasy and reality collude with one another in this spiralling ascension of desire and disgrace.

Dry Spell delves into a shuddering moment in time, blending nostalgia and futurism to create scenes of excitement, fear and pleasure. A mind can be very misleading, especially when we are in close proximity to it.

Performed by Footnote New Zealand Dance’s team of electrifying dance artists, with choreography by trailblazing choreographer Rose Philpott and sound design by acclaimed composer Eden Mulholland, Dry Spell is a performance for thrill-seekers. Teetering on an edge of hallucination and reality, this full-length show taps into the collective and individual needs of the soul.


Concession prices are available for full-time students, members of recognised entertainment organisations, and Community Services Card holders and people aged 25 years or younger. Presentation of an appropriate ID will be required.
