Tread Softly is a collaboration between photographer Tom Hoyle and choreographer Sacha Copland.

As the days grow shorter Autumn will spread throughout the gallery and dancers will capture moments of abandon in and amongst falling leaves. This fusion of photography and choreography culminates with NZ Dance Week, when the gallery becomes a dancer’s habitat for the whole week. 

Tread Softly offers the chance to spend a stolen moment with autumnal fragility and human curiosity before the ephemeral dance of life descends into winter.  

Dancer/s will inhabit the space at the following times:

Tuesdays 11.30am-1pm
Thursdays 6-7pm
Saturdays 11.30am-1pm

NZ Dance Week
Monday & Tuesday 10am-12pm & 1-4pm
Thursday & Friday 10am-12pm & 6.30-7.30pm
