The Fall Guy Season: Wednesday 1 - Saturday 4 September Time: 8pm Tickets: $16 full/$12 concession 'The Fall Guy' features international dance artist Guy Ryan in a new solo work - a courageous and uniquely beautiful performance of dance, theatre and projected audio-visual imagery. Set to new music by electronic wizard Charlotte 90, 'The Fall Guy' is an exploration of the human desire for flight and all that it implies, from the lofty ideal of transcendence to the gritty reality that unaided, we will never be able to fly. It is an exquisite performance in which the mythology of Icarus meets miniature planes, Muriwai gannets and the wonders and horrors of modern flying.

"Ryan is an intelligent choreographer whose inventiveness and eye for detail bodes well for future works from him" NZ Listener, 2001

Guy Ryan is one of New Zealand's leading young choreographic artists. Having co-directed and performed in 'Terrain', winning the 'best production award' at Fringe NZ 2004, he has recently returned from Europe, where he danced with Random Scream Company in Brussels and studied at the Impulstanz Festival in Vienna on a prestigious Dance Web scholarship. He has danced in numerous productions over the last ten years in NZ, Australia, Ireland, England, Belgium and Switzerland.

Howard Davis Article: A Musical Axis - Brahms, Wagner, Sibelius

Brahms' warm and exquisitely subtle Symphony No. 3 in F major, Wagner's irrepressibly sentimental symphonic poem Siegfried Idyll, and Sibelius' chilling and immensely challenging Violin Concerto in D minor exemplify distinct stages of development in a tangled and convoluted series of skirmishes that came to define subsequent disputes about the nature of post-Romantic orchestral writing well into the following century.
