Black Grace is a renowned indigenous dance company that blends Pacific and contemporary dance. This video shows a sample of its repertoire from the the past fifteen years. The company’s founder and artsitic director, Neil Ieremia, has twice been artist-in-residence of the Centre’s indigenous dance program. For Migration he collaborated with Sandra Laronde, artistic director of Red Sky and director of the Centre’s Aboriginal arts programming.
