Touch Compass is New Zealand’s only professional inclusive dance company, forming the points where disabled and non-disabled dancers meet on the floor and in mid-air. Specialising in aerial work and dance-theatre, our performances draw from Contact Improvisation, a dance practice that emerged out of the ’70s and has been taken to spectacular realms in the 2000s.
We've been challenging perceptions about what dance is and who can do it since 1997. One of only 22 arts organisations to receive recurrent Creative New Zealand funding, our ground-breaking performances have won national and international acclaim. Social change is what we’re all about.
In fact this year is our 20th anniversary and we have some exciting projects lined up so watch this space.
