Pointes of View

These quarterly conversations look beneath dance’s performance veneer and consider topical, thought-provoking issues confronting the dance world today.
Join us for an evening of lively discussion as we explore the role of the arts critic. This thought-provoking event asks us to consider what we seek from a review, be this as an arts patron or creative artist.

We are thrilled that the host for POINTES OF VIEW is renowned broadcaster Eva Radich, who was presenter and producer of RNZ Concert’s daily arts news programme, Upbeat.

Date and time: Wednesday 3 April at 6.30pm
Venue: Te Whaea – National Dance and Drama Centre
Seating: General Admission (booking is essential)
Cost: Koha
Parking is available on site
