C is for Climate Change


In August 2017 Crows Feet Dance Collective presents a new work ‘C is for Climate Change’. We explore through dance, song and visual imagery the impact that climate change is having, and going to have, upon our lives.

We ask the question “what sort of world are we leaving to our grandchildren?”. We look at our own local communities and explore issues like coastal erosion; we look at the impact of sea level rise upon our neighbours in the the Pacific Islands.

But it is not all deadly serious. We have some fun too, dancing to songs like ‘Singing in the Rain’ ( the climate change deniers dance!) and ‘Too Darn Hot’.

Actor Lorae Parry recreates her famous Helen Clark impersonation as we use Helen’s words about climate change that she presented recently at the United Nations.

With ‘C for Climate Change’ we intend to provoke and to entertain our audiences.

Our four groups are based in Wellington, the Kapiti Coast, Lower Hutt and Palmerston North, New Zealand.  Any woman can join, provided she’s over 35. We have a total of between forty to fifty women dancing across all four groups.

There is no entry requirement. Previous experience is not necessary and the groups are a mix of experienced, less experienced and beginner dancers.

Every year since 1999 we have performed a new programme of contemporary dance. We now have a repertoire of over twenty-five dances.

Jan Bolwell is our choreographer, director, organiser and inspiration.

This is your brain on art

We feel the dance when we watch it - Many scientists believe we map other people’s actions into our own somatosensory system, which conveys sensation through the brain and body and helps us feel the emotions we perceive in others as if they were our own.

When we experience art, we feel connected to something larger. Why? A new field of science has the answers to some of art’s enduring mysteries.

Crows Feet’s first public performance took place in 1999 at the launch of Osteoporosis New Zealand at the Michael Fowler Centre.

Apart from annual dance concerts we have performed at a number of different events, including a National Midwives Conference, a National Women’s Convention, and a Cancer Society conference (2008). We are regular contributors to Wellington’s International Dance Day, running classes and demonstrations. In 2008 we performed at the Fringe Festivals in Wellington and Dunedin.
