As Night Falls

Dance by Neil Ieremia


A poetic ode to our troubled world, As Night Falls is a beautiful new work choreographed by Artistic Director Neil Ieremia, set to the timeless and passionate sound of Antonio Vivaldi.

As Night Falls is bold and bright like the colourful muumuu dresses worn by my mother without shame or ceremony. 

I had initially wanted this work to be the expression of my concerns and fears of the darkness that seems to be eroding the value of equality and human life.

Instead, I feel compelled to respond with a contrasting beauty and physical vitality, musicality and hope.  It is my offer of beauty for ashes.” – Neil Ieremia
