Dancing Amongst Ruins
CHRISTCHURCH. One year after the earthquake the centre of Christchurch still looks like a war zone. Dead end streets and ruins everywhere. Traffic lights flashing with no traffic in sight. We’re hungry and searching for a restaurant, but what we find is a tiny piece of beauty amidst chaos: a dance floor, loudspeakers, a mirror ball and a dancing couple. The dance-o-mat is only one of many Gapfiller Projects in Christchurch, that tries to revitalise places the earthquake has destroyed.
