Media Release

For immediate release 10 March 2006

New Zealand’s newest dance group, In Flight Productions, is to perform their innovative new works at Fringe ’06. Their show, ‘Voices in the Void,’ is a collection of contemporary dance vignettes – New Creations that will excite and inspire the audience! ‘Voices in the Void’ will run over two nights at the Wellington Performing Arts Centre, 4th and 5th of March 2006, 7pm.
In Flight Productions was set up by ten graduates of the 2005 Unitec Contemporary Dance programme. It is a forum for emerging choreographers to come together, to support each others’ dance and choreography and create stirring new performances. One of their main desires is to expose dance to a wider audience; “As a dancer, I love sharing my enjoyment with the audience, and delivering something they can chew on,” says dancer/choreographer Georgie Goater.

The company present dance pieces that possess a strong creative vision, resulting in performances which are provocative and energetic.

‘Voices in the Void’ is a raw look at the world through the eyes of young women in Aotearoa. Through a series of vignettes the choreographers explore issues such as the world energy crisis, ME (chronic fatigue), women’s portrayal in the media and sexuality. "I choreograph because I love the process of looking at the details of creating something. Finding surprise moments, and evolving my own Interpretations of what I experience," says dancer/choreographer Emily Rose.

What emerges from ‘Voices in the Void’ is something that is fresh, honest, sexy and experimental – dance performance at its best!


‘Voices in the Void’ Ticket Prices:
Adult $15.00
Students: $10.00
Fringe Card holders: $7.00

IN FLIGHT PRODUCTIONS … A collective of freshly hatched dancers, choreographers and artist.

As the graduating class of 2005, excited and a little apprehensive knowing that we were about to step out into the unknown, we decided to take matters into our own hands and continue to work (and play) together by forming In Flight Productions.

As In Flight, we stand as an artistically and culturally diverse group of people. We come from Auckland, Wellington, Christchurch, Invercargill, Samoa, Fiji, Wales, China and Singapore. We come from sport, art, design, academia, music, public schools, private schools, single-sex and co-ed; divorced, de-facto and still-together families; Generation x, y and z. More recently however, we have all been based in Auckland and have predominantly been found lurking around the dance studios at Unitec in Pt. Chevelier.

In Flight Productions is an umbrella under which we can choreograph, dance, perform and bounce ideas off each other, working together to sharpen our tools as dance artists. In Flight have now had three years of working together and we are looking forward to bringing you a collection of new and experimental works. We take on some of today’s challenging and controversial topics and serve them up in some not-so-ordinary ways.

Howard Davis Review: From Free Press to Fancy Dress - Spielberg's The Post

Stephen Spielberg's The Post is an opportune newsroom drama in which a corrupt Republican president wages war against the "liberal media," as its plucky proprietor risks economic and legal ruin to bring the Pentagon Papers to public light. Its true protagonist is publisher Katharine Graham, a stringently diplomatic businesswoman, reluctantly compelled to take an overtly political stance in the interests of democracy and freedom of the press.

Howard Davis Review: The Black Dog of Empire - Joe Wright's Darkest Hour'

On the eve of England's contorted efforts to negotiate its ignominious retreat from Europe and the chaotic spectacle of the Tory party ratifying its undignified departure from a union originally designed to prevent another World War, there has been a renewed appetite for movies about 1940. More>>

Howard Davis Review: Anger Begets Anger - Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri

For fans of what Ricky Gervais termed "number movies" (Seven Samurai, The Magnificent Seven, Ocean's 11, Se7en), Martin McDonagh's latest offering will be a welcome addition to the roster. The Irish playwright turned screenwriter and director has produced another quirky and darkly comic tragedy that evolves around the futility of anger and grief, retribution and revenge. More>>

Howard Davis: Sexting in George Dawe's Genevieve - Part I

Te Papa's permanent collection includes an enormous oil painting by the English artist George Dawe called Genevieve (from by a poem by S.T. Coleridge entitled 'Love') that was prominently featured in the 2013 exhibition Angels & Aristocrats. Compare the massive immensity of the bard's gorgeously gilded harp with the stubby metallic handle of the Dark Knight's falchion, both suggestively positioned at crotch-level. Dawe's enormous canvas invokes a whole history of blushing that pivots around a direct connection to sexual arousal. More>>


Ethnomusicology: Malian ‘Desert Blues’ Revolutionaries To Storm WOMAD

Malian band Tinariwen (playing WOMAD NZ in March 2018) are a true musical revolutionaries in every sense. Active since 1982, these nomadic Tuareg or ‘Kel Tamashek’ (speakers of Tamashek) electric guitar legends revolutionised a traditional style to give birth to a new genre often called ‘desert blues’. They also have a history rooted deeply in revolution and fighting for the rights of their nomadic Tamashek speaking culture and people. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Best New Music Of 2017

Any ‘best of list’ has to be an exercise in wishful thinking, given the splintering of everyone’s listening habits... But maybe… it could be time for the re-discovery of the lost art of listening to an entire album, all the way through. Just putting that idea out there. More>>
