Ocean Wave Performance

For the past 6 months Lyne Pringle has immersed herself in the shifting tides of South Dunedin. In this time she has choreographed the whole of Forbury School into an oceanic dance as it navigates its way through a decision by the Ministry of Education to close it down.
 Ocean Wave investigates the notion of finding solace in the sea and the various ways that people interact with it. South Dunedin is one of the most densely populated urban areas in Australasia; one of the poorest neighbourhoods in New Zealand borders one of the most affluent; all inhabitants share a precarious border with a dynamic rising ocean that licks constantly at vulnerable sand dunes.
