“Neil Ieremia creates a new masterpiece. As Night Falls is full of inventive choreography and thoughtful concepts.” - National Business Review, 2016
A poetic ode to our troubled world, As Night Falls is Artistic Director Neil Ieremia’s latest full length work, beautifully set to the timeless and passionate sound of Antonio Vivaldi.
Black Grace was founded by Neil Ieremia in 1995 and continues to draw inspiration from his Samoan and New Zealand roots to create innovative dance works that reach across social, cultural and generational barriers. Ieremia has been met with widespread recognition for his legacy of work from both audiences and critics alike, all over the globe. He has taken home the Senior Pacific Artist Award from Creative New Zealand and has made the Queen’s Birthday Honours List becoming an Officer of the New Zealand Order of Merit.
