Fringy Fringe: Artimus

A modern dance theatre work from some of New Zealand's top Commercial dancers. An edgy, heart warming, Fast paced dance adventure with high energy story telling.

A tale of Love; how it is found, lost, and in turn created.

Inspired by the story of Artemis (the Greek goddess of nature and the hunt), conceived through a scandalous affair between the arrogant Zeus and the innocent Leto. Our tale follows the chaos surrounding this unrequited love and its consequences. How did Artemis become the savage goddess she’s known as?

Translated, the spelling of the name “ARTIMUS” means:

“Follower of the goddess Artemis”.

This translation has allowed us to create and devise our own perceptions of this Greek story.
