After the success of the 2017 residency, Toi Pōneke is proud to offer two dance practitioners a chance to take bold risks and test something fresh in Wellington's hottest stomping ground: NZ Fringe.

Connor Masseurs and Toa Paranihi, two recent New Zealand School of Dance graduates, are developing their new work, Blueprint, which will be performed at Te Auaha, 21-24 March 2018.

The dancers are joined by producer and recent Toi Whakaari graduate Liv Chan.

Liv is under the guidance of experienced Wellington producer Adrianne Roberts, while Connor and Toa have the mentorship of DANZ Chief Executive Anton Carter.

The Toi Pōneke dance residency offers studio space, financial and practical support for the production, and access to experienced mentors.
