AROHAOTEAROA - 3 shows only in Wellington!

Next Week
Kip, James and Angela invite you to
AROHAOTEAROA
(Love New Zealand)
3 shows only in Wellington!
18, 19, and 20 May 2006 at 8pm.

We are fundraising for our tour of the community halls of the South Island in October this year

Based on a collection of artlessly shot New Zealand slides the show performed by Kip Chapman, highlights the ordinary things that make us proud to be a Kiwi. Scenes range from a survivors account of the Wahine disaster and the Peter Plumley Walker Drinking game to a waitress's poetic listing of standard New Zealand Café fare. Each scene is told in a different style and linked by a feeling of nostalgia and James Milne's affectionate music.

Further to the play Arohaotearoa offers each small community the chance to celebrate these themes as a whole. You are invited to embrace the Kiwi tradition of "Bringing a plate," and after the show interact with one another and the performers over cups of tea, lamingtons, egg sandwiches, sausage rolls, apple slice, lolly cake, and neenish tarts!

"Arohaotearoa is an extremely dry look under some damp Kiwi Covers at issues, stories and characters from the barely beating heartland. Witty, Droll, an elegant little suite in minor keys accompanied by a slide show that Te Papa should acquire as a reflection of mid-century European Kiwiana." - NZ Herald

Show times: 18th MAY 8pm TARAUA TRAMPING CLUB
19th MAY 8pm ST JUDES CHURCH HALL
20TH MAY 8PM ISLAND BAY SURF CLUB (bring a cushion)

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.

Scoop Review Of Books: A Pale Ghost Writer

Reviewed by Ruth Brassington, Richard Flanagan's new novel is about a novelist hastily ghost-writing the biography of a crook about to go to trial. The reader is kept on a cliff-edge, as the narrator tries to get blood out of his stone man. More>>
