The Anatomy of a Passing Cloud Resource

RNZB Education proudly presents another stunning NCEA resource



THE ANATOMY OF A PASSING CLOUD
               By Javier De Frutos


 

Javier’s commission to make a new work for the RNZB coincided with the ten year anniversary of his first piece for the company. The Anatomy of a Passing Cloud was his gift to New Zealand, as an artist, a colleague and a friend of the RNZB and a “surrogate part of the New Zealand family”. It explores Pasifika imagery and movement, and is a vibrant celebration of our unique and joyful culture.

 

This resource is designed to support the NZ Dance Curriculum in the secondary classroom. It aligns with NCEA Levels 2 and 3 Dance, for both Internal and External Achievement Standards. It may be easily adapted and simplified for use at NCEA Level 1 or as part of a Junior Secondary Dance programme.

  • Level 3:

91594 Analyse a dance performance

  • Level 2:
