Press Release: Lifeworld (in five parts)

Footnote New Zealand Dance World premiere opens with philanthropy.

Footnote New Zealand Dance presents the world premiere of Lifeworld (in five parts) on Wednesday night and Wellington based executive search and recruitment company JacksonStone & Partners are welcoming new residents to New Zealand with free tickets to opening night.

JacksonStone & Partners is a proud and active supporter of the Arts and community-based organisations across New Zealand and this latest offering is making opening night even more special for Footnote.

“We are thrilled that JacksonStone chose Footnote as their partner in introducing local art to these new Kiwis. The work that Footnote creates is an indispensable part of New Zealand culture and heritage, so what better way to welcome our newest New Zealanders than with an opportunity to see movement developed on Cuba Street unfolding in front of them in the Opera House?” Richard Aindow, General Manager

JacksonStone & Partners secured fifty opening night tickets ahead of the pre-sale and are distributing these to recent refugees through Refugee Services, Red Cross.

“As a long-standing supporter of Footnote New Zealand, we are very pleased to be introducing our new Wellingtonians to this world-class contemporary dance performance. We are sure it has been very challenging for the Refugees to begin their lives again and we chose dance as a sponsorship as it doesn’t require language to feel, experience and interact. Having met some of these new Wellingtonians, we know they are keen to be part of the fabric of New Zealand society and this performance by Footnote, we hope contributes to that” said Lindsay Jackson, Director, JacksonStone & Partners.

Don’t miss this powerful new dance theatre work by one of New Zealand’s leading choreographic talents. Lifeworld (in five parts) tours nationally to six centres opening in Wellington on 19 October, Palmerston North 21 October, Gisborne 25 October, New Plymouth 28 October, Hamilton 2 November and closing in Auckland on 4 November.
