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 - 'I, Daniel Blake' - Ken Loach's Bleak Masterpiece

'I, Daniel Blake' is a bleak masterpiece, a chilling and moving story of two people striking up an unlikely friendship under extremely adverse circumstances. It is both a polemical indictment of a faceless benefits bureaucracy that strips claimants of their humanity by reducing them to mere numbers, and a celebration of the decency and compassion of ordinary people who look out for one another when the state has abandoned them.
