Story: Contemporary dance

Touch Compass (1st of 2)

Choreographer Carol Brown and Touch Compass dancers Daniel King and Julia Milsom talk about the process of developing and dancing Slip, I’m not falling I’m just holding on for as long as you can hold me (2010). The show won a New Zealand Listener Arts Touchstone award in 2010, and its repeated performance (in 2010, 2011, and 2012) is testament to its popularity with audiences.
