This Love Will Undo Us All Season: Thursday 1 - Saturday 3 April Time: 7.30pm Tickets: $15 full/ $12 concession

Wellington songwriter Dan Adams (Verona) has created an intimate live show of Shakespeare songs to celebrate the launch of his CD This Love Will Undo Us All. It is a stunning collection of poems and dialogue from Shakespeare¹s plays, set to acoustic rock styles that are both refreshingly unique and undeniably Kiwi.

The show features the original musicians from the CD - Dan Adams (vocals, guitar, fife), Sebastian Morgan-Lynch (cello) and Douglas Voon (percussion, backing vocals).

³With just three musicians it's easy for each sound to find its own space - something that is more difficult to achieve in a larger ensemble like Verona. In this relaxed setting I can explore the full range of my singing voice, and different shades of meaning in these amazing texts.²

For everyone who enjoyed art-rock band Verona¹s award winning Shakespeare show Storm (2002) and their recent NZ International Arts Festival show Geographical Cure this is a 'must see' night - and a chance to introduce friends and family to this inspiring musical talent.

The CD will be available for sale at the show or visit www.thislove.co.nz. Normally $30, there will be a special show CD price of $25.

Scoop Review Of Books: Excerpt - Ice Bear: The Cultural History Of An Arctic Icon

“During the last decade the image of the polar bear has moved in the public imagination from being an icon of strength, independence and survival in one of the most climatically extreme of world environments, to that of fragility, vulnerability and more generally of a global environmental crisis.” More>>

So concerns about the work of the piece have to be addressed; but they are complex, and probably better handled in another post. So what about this production itself? More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>
