Sneak peek aerial spectacular

Canterbury residents are being given the chance this month to attend a free development presentation of BELLE – A performance of Air.

With support from the Ministry of Culture and Heritage and Creative New Zealand, MOVEMENT OF THE HUMAN (MOTH) is developing the work in Christchurch before it premieres at the Aotearoa New Zealand Festival of the Arts in Wellington next year.

BELLE is an exhibition style performance event that utilises and harnesses the skills of aerial specialists in collaboration with dance artists, performed with live music by Anita Clark, composed in collaboration with Eden and Jol Mulholland.

Known for her innovative projects across Aotearoa and direction on the World of Wearable Art awards, director Malia Johnston collaborates with fellow artists Rowan Pierce (Performance Design), Jenny Ritchie (Aerial Choreography and Design) and an exceptional, international, all female cast to bring this unique performance exhibition to Christchurch.
BELLE takes its name from the French word libellule (dragonfly) and is also the name of the show’s unique purpose-built circus apparatus. The dragonfly is symbolic for transformation.

In BELLE, transformation is created with sculptural light portals and AV where the performers appear and reappear as if by magic.

Spaces are limited and bookings essential.


November 25th-27th
6:30pm and 8:30pm
