A poetic ode to our troubled world, As Night Falls is Artistic Director Neil Ieremia’s latest evening length work, beautifully set to the timeless and passionate sound of Antonio Vivaldi.

“Neil Ieremia creates a new masterpiece.  As Night Falls is full of inventive choreography and thoughtful concepts.”- National Business Review, 2016 

Following a sold-out Auckland season in 2016, and a 10-centre tour of the United States, Black Grace are proud to tour this exceptional work to 8 venues around Aotearoa.

As Night Falls is bold and bright like the colourful muumuu dresses worn by my mother without shame or ceremony. I had initially wanted this work to be the expression of my concerns and fears of the darkness that seems to be eroding the value of equality and human life. Instead, I feel compelled to respond with a contrasting beauty and physical vitality, musicality and hope.  It is my offer of beauty for ashes.” – Neil Ieremia

“Dancers impeccably present Ieremia’s choreography, leaving the audience in awe of their strength, stamina and accomplishment.” - New Zealand Herald, 2016
