Black Grace performing

Black Grace performing

Contemporary dance company Black Grace was founded in 1995 by lead dancer and choreographer Neil Ieremia, and performs original works inspired by Ieremia's Samoan and New Zealand roots. The company tours regularly in America and Europe. In 2012 it appeared at the opening ceremony of the 8th Busan International Dance Festival in South Korea. This photograph shows that performance, before an audience of thousands.
