A new piece of gig-theatre about why and when we as humans dance
And a new single to capture the show
Award winning UK alternative-folk duo,
Good Habits, are joined by contemporary dancer, Cade Hansen, to present their latest international collaboration. Displaying their virtuosic cello-accordion playing within original electro-acoustic genre infused composition, they tell a new story.
In 'I Don’t Know How To Dance', Good Habits invite voices from across the globe to share their experiences and interactions of dance, which become woven into the audio tapestry of the show. Amongst this, they tell a story of confidence, culture, and identity, embodied by Cade Hansen (New Zealand School of Dance)
Through an energetic connection where the musicians dance and the dancer is amongst the music, the performance takes us on an invigorating journey through genre and dance as a social ritual, exploring it’s diverse roles and meanings.
Cade is a 2020 graduate of the New Zealand School of Dance majoring in Contemporary Dance. He has previously performed at the Tempo Dance Festival, Auckland Fringe Festival and the World Of Wearable Arts in 2018.
