What They Said unites The New Zealand Dance Company (NZDC) with Australian choreographer Jo Lloyd for a collaboration that explores our tendency to be preoccupied with drama and our fascination with the inevitable.

Premiering in October at Tempo Dance Festival 2022 as part of the Tempo: Te Rerenga o Tere programme, What They Said unites The New Zealand Dance Company (NZDC) with celebrated Australian choreographer Jo Lloyd for her first work made on a New Zealand company. 

Jo Lloyd is an award-winning dance artist based in Melbourne, Australia, working with choreography as a social encounter, revealing behaviour over various durations and contexts. Jo has presented work in Japan, Hong Kong, New Zealand, Melbourne International Festival, the National Gallery of Australia, Mona Foma Tasmania, Liveworks and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Sydney.

In this cross Tasman collaboration, Lloyd and her longtime collaborators Duane Morrison (Music) and Andrew Treloar (Costumes) take the leap into creating her first “play without words”, for dance.
