This Piece Won't Change the World

afterburner and Kiwigians Inc

Dancers Matt and Benedikte Onarheim-Smith, with collaborator designer-performer Martyn Roberts, present an intimate yet quirky take on parenthood, coupledom and misfired emotional states of being. In this production, Dance is presented as an unravelling, not just of the self, but the very conventions of Dance itself. This work is a co-production between afterburner and Dunedin-based Kiwegians.


Harnessing a wide range of performative styles, Matthew and Benedikte use everything at their disposal to present a sometimes humorous, sometimes poignant, exploration of coupledom. Ostensibly a love duet, they are playing with the clichés and prejudices associated with dance by both indulging and undermining it.


What is real/actual/autobiographic is morphed in and out of fiction, leaving an uncertainty as to what is actually genuine.


“The juicy soundtrack belies clever physicality and smart discourse: a must-see. This Piece Won’t Change the World just might.” Theatreview 18 March 2021.
