The big environmental issue of our time

President Trump may scoff at climate change, but we don’t. Crows Feet presents a powerful, provocative and entertaining programme of dance that comments on the most pressing global issue of all — climate change.

We look at our own backyard: erosion on the Kapiti Coast, pollution of the Manawatu River, our use of plastic, and our role as guardians of planet earth. But it is not all serious.

We include two frivolous dances for the climate change deniers — ‘Singing in the Rain’ and ‘It’s too darn hot’.

Crows Feet have been dancing for years  

Crows Feet Dance has been in action since 1999. This community dance company of mature women now ranges across the lower North Island with groups in Wellington, the Kapiti Coast, Lower Hutt and most recently, Palmerston North.

They have all come together to present a programme about climate change.

Director Jan Bolwell says: We started with the question – what sort of world do we want to leave to our children and grandchildren? – the dances just grew from there. 

C is for Climate Change includes a dance on water purity by guest choreographer Sacha Copland of Java Dance Company, stunning music by Kapiti Coast composer and Crows Feet dancer Michelle Scullion, and writing by Bianca Begovich, a Kapiti Coast environmental educator.

Bolwell states: This is a wide ranging look at what is happening to our environment and the programme is suitable for all age groups.”

Don’t miss the Crows! 

‘Watching these older dancing bodies create shapes, fiercely throw punches in the air, balance warrior-like, embody the ocean in their arms as they hula, is inspiring’  Theatreview 2016
