21 MOVEMENTS

By Alexa Wilson

21 Movements presents as an interactive solo piece, Pecha Kucha style, performative responses by 2011 Auckland Fringe multiple award winner and choreographer Alexa Wilson and at moments audience members to photographs by collaborator Nicholas Watt, which interpretively map major events in the 21st Century. It will collectively and subjectively remember and embody defining 21st Century events.


Awards include:
Tup Lang Award CNZ for Toxic White Elephant Shock 2008
Best Emerging Contemporary Choreographer for Magic Box 2004 - NZ Listener
4 Auckland Fringe Awards for Weg: A-Way 2011

21 Movements has been performed already in Europe in 40 minute version - at Manifesta 11 in Zurich at Cabaret Voltaire (Contemporary Art Biennale).

Alexa has bravely shaped her own intrinsic voice.
She targets our conceits and the rough, untidy journey she takes us on is always perceptive and unsettling.
Fulfilling a vital role of the artist, she is always a force to be reckoned with.
— Francesca Horsley, NZ Listener
