On Thursday 1st October 2020, over 50 Nelsonians took to the streets in mesmerising unity.
Crafted by choreographer Chloe Loftus for the Nelson Arts Festival, ‘Us’ is a processional mass movement event, a long line of community in unison, weaving through the city and its galleries. 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.
‘Us’ will be recreated for the Wanaka Community for Festival of Colour 2021.
