First we take Manhattan - Lucy Marinkovich and Lucien Johnson

From Standing Room Only, 1:50 pm on 16 December 2018

Creative Wellington couple Lucy Marinkovich and Lucien Johnson will soon be packing their bags - and in Lucien's case his saxophone - to head to the Big Apple on the Harriet Friedlander New York Residency.

There's no time limit as such - they can stay as long as the $100,000 that comes with the residency lasts them.

Lucy is a dancer and choreographer who's worked with Footnote and the New Zealand Dance companies and is the Creative Director of the Borderline Arts Ensemble, which she founded with Lucien.They were part of the team behind the award-winning Lobsters at Circa in 2017.

Lucien meanwhile is a saxophonist who's played live  with leading jazz musicians overseas and recorded with local artists including The Phoenix Foundation, Lawrence Arabia and Hollie Smith.
