Inspired by the 1945 film classic Brief Encounter, named by The Guardian as “the best romantic film of all time”, THURSDAY creates a brief encounter with the arts for Wellington’s unsuspecting public. The Wellington Railway station will for a brief moment transform from a place of transportation and transit, to a scene of high romance and nostalgia. Borderline Arts Ensemble is excited for people to look at their public spaces anew through dance and art. THURSDAY is a duet full of drama and stunning dancing, created by Borderline's Artistic Director and "ascendant dancer and choreographer Lucy Marinkovich" (Pantograph Punch).
