Lo|Co is an InterArts collective fascinated by movement and music
and how these living worlds intersect .
Lo | Co Arts is the brain-child of choreographer/director, Loughlan Prior and composer/director, Claire Cowan.
Formed as a place where artistic worlds collide, Lo | Co engages with an ensemble of mixed genre creatives to build engaging contemporary experiences. The collective's aim is to produce evocative performance work that seamlessly blends the worlds of music, dance and design, with a particular focus on technology and digital integration within the art space.
Lo | Co Arts presented their premiere work HALF | LIFE, an interdisciplinary dance theatre performance at Tempo Dance Festival 2022.
"The outstanding group of dancers who are onstage throughout, perform Prior’s unique vocabulary of seamless contemporary ballet with a commitment that is a joy to watch, imbuing every movement with meaning. One of the strengths of this collaborative approach is the rare synergy that exists between Prior’s choreography and Cowan’s musical composition." - Jenny Stevenson, Theatre Review
Claire and Loughlan first collaborated in 2014, and from the very moment they performed together their creative chemistry was undeniably electric. They have continued to forge new and inventive projects together across New Zealand and Internationally (Subtle Dances, Hansel & Gretel, Ultra Violet, Inklings, Cinderella.)
Stay tuned for announcements on upcoming projects.
