Dancing on Icebergs premiere + Q&A

Follow the awe-inspiring achievement of award-winning choreographer Corey Baker as he creates the first ever dance film on the world’s last great wilderness, Antarctica. 

Join us for the world premiere of 'Dancing on Icebergs' a documentary charting the two-year-long making of the short film 'Antarctica: The First Dance'. See the intense fragility and austere beauty of the landscape, while witnessing how temperatures of -2 to -16°C impacted and shaped Baker’s work. 

The screening will be followed by a Q&A on stage with Baker himself. Baker will discuss the story behind the film and the changing face, and climate, of the great polar continent with producer Anne Beresford and Huw Griffiths, Marine Biogeographer at The British Antarctic Survey.

Admission is on a first come, first served basis. As not everyone who reserves tickets uses them, we make more tickets available than there are seats in order to ensure a full house. To ensure you get a seat, please arrive early. 

Produced by Top Shelf Productions New Zealand, 'Dancing on Icebergs' (New Zealand, Dir. Corey Baker, 75 mins) will be broadcast later this year on Choice Tv New Zealand.
