nominated for the 'Momentous Movement Award'


Choreographed by Alessia Augello

Choreographed by Bjorn Aslund

Choreographed by Alec Katsourakis

Proudly presented by the Toi Poneke dance residency and DANZ Aotearoa, Situations In Play is a triple bill immersive dance show featuring 3 new works by Bjorn Aslund, Alessia Augello and Alec Katsourakis.

Inspired by immersive and site specific dance performance, all three emerging artists challenge pre-conceived notions behind choreography and performance.

Working closely with some of Aotearoa's finest musical talents, this full length-work was carefully curated and supported by an original soundscape by Current Bias (Jack Rowan Jenkins), Reuben Topzand and Barbara Paterson.

Contributing to the Wellington arts ecology through their visionary performance explorations, these artists are proud to develop and share their choreographic voices to NZs cultural capital Poneke (Wellington).

Mattias Olofsson
Producer & Lighting Designer

'For Situations In Play , I decided to undertake the double headed role of both producer and lighting designer. In my work as Producer I've focused on creating a framework and space for playing and exploring, to provide a foundation where both play and experimentation can rest. In regards to Lighting Design , my focus has been on challenging my ability for site specific design and enhancing the nuances of the movement and words developed by the choreographers and performers'
