Help us tell the story of Canterbury
at home and at war
during 1914 -1918.
The Royal New Zealand Ballet is honoured to collaborate with the New Zealand Army Band and distinguished New Zealand composers and choreographers Dwayne Bloomfield, Gareth Farr, Neil Ieremia and Andrew Simmons, in this special programme of works to mark the centenary of the Gallipoli landings.
Alongside classic pieces by Johan Kobborg (Salute, New Zealand premiere), Neil Ieremia and Andrew Simmons will create two world premieres.
As part of a national project being organised by the Fields of Remembrance Trust the Timaru WWOne Centenary Committee are producing 1,500 white crosses.
The crosses represent every man and woman from the region who died in the First World War.
The crosses will be on display in various sites throughout South Canterbury when they are completed and will be a major feature in Anzac Day commemorations in South Canterbury.
