Created by award-winning choreographer and dance film maker Sue Healey, with music by New Zealand jazz legend Mike Nock, Virtuosi is a feature length documentary about the drive to be an artist and the special nature of virtuosity in dance. Through exhilarating dance and stories from the heart, Virtuosi reveals intimate and astounding portraits of eight New Zealand dance artists. Destined for greatness, these artists all left their homeland in their youth, to pursue careers around the world. They have each achieved remarkable things and through this film audiences have the rare chance to reflect on their careers. Virtuosi dances ideas across many cities and cultures - New York, Berlin, London, Brussels and Australia - revealing fascinating dance lineages and connections back to New Zealand.
