On Sunday 7 November, the people of New Plymouth will take to the streets in mesmerising unity.

Crafted by choreographer Chloe Loftus for the Taranaki Arts Festival, ‘Us’ is a processional mass movement event, a long line of community in unison, weaving through the city. This event is a celebration of the unique heart and soul of this city – its people. Drawing inspiration from Pina Bausch’s ‘lines’, this serene and symbolic mass movement happening is a reminder of the power of community. ‘Us’ brings a joyful sense of connection to each other and this city.

Be a part of Us.

We’d like to invite the Taranaki community to participate in ‘US’. Amateurs and professionals, experts and the curious - all are welcome to learn this simple short gestural choreography and be a part of this magical community event. Please click here for more information and to register your interest.

We only require that you are 14yrs of age or older, can attend one of the rehearsals and are available on the morning of SUNDAY 7 NOVEMBER.
