En Route To Success
The Producing Project presents: En Route – a three part performance journey debuting original work from New Zealand's freshest choreographers. The En Route series meets you in the sombre depths of our final hours and moves you towards the celebration of a new life (holding your hand through all the ups and downs that lie in between).
After the highly successful Live Series (2011), The Producing Project continues to provide a platform for young producers to hone their skills in a practical environment. The Producing Project is Auckland's answer to the lack of producers to facilitate dance and theatre in Auckland. Its participants present a series of performances that not only provide hands on learning for the producing team, but an invaluable platform for emerging dance artists in New Zealand to put their work on show.
