FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Unique interactive dance show needs your help!

Pineapple Productions presents

The Pineapple Jukebox Dance Show

Directed by the choreographer Julie Anterrieu

Selected to perform during the Auckland Fringe Festival 2013 at the Q Theatre for four dates running from the 20th-23rd February 2013, the Pineapple Jukebox Dance Show is a show like no other presented by the Auckland-based dance company Pineapple Productions.

This interactive dance show now needs a little help to be brought to the Auckland stage.

Pineapple Production’s choreographer, Julie Anterrieu has choreographed and performed in Contemporary, Jazz and Broadway shows for 15 years across Paris, New York and Auckland, winning several awards in France and New Zealand for her work.

After holding on to the Dance Jukebox concept in the back of her mind for 6 long years, she finally found in her company the dance abilities and potential to give life to her exciting idea.

Staying true to her versatile training and passion for anything dance, Julie decided to produce a show that allows the audience to experience different dance styles.

For the past year, Pineapple Productions has been living up to those principles with creations that include successful and always evolving performances such as dancing French Cancan for a Champagne launch for Jean-Paul Gaultier and for the Rugby World Cup, Flashmobs for brands such as Bagabond, Hallensteins, Glassons and even the Auckland City Hospital, as well as Vintage choreographies for private functions and the Very Vintage Day Out.

Her exceptional new production – The Pineapple Jukebox Dance Show - is an interactive dance show taking on real Jukebox rules, placing the audience in full control.

From a pre-set list of songs, the audience gets to decide which dance they want to see the dancers perform!

Be transported from French Cancan to Classical Ballet, fast-paced Charleston to slow acrobatic chair moves, and vintage high heeled pin up to grunge contemporary all in a matter of minutes.

The Pineapple dancers love their art so much that they are willing to try any style of dance.

They are crazy enough to refine these diverse pieces, unsure of which ones they will perform and what the running order will be.

To cover some of the show’s expenses, the company is now turning to supporters for help through the Internet.

Pledgeme is a crowdfunding website designed for creative projects, where people can donate and receive rewards for their contribution.

People pledging towards this project will be able to pre-book their tickets for the show and support the company at the same time.

No matter how much you’d like to give, every contribution is important in bringing this original show to the Auckland stage!

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>>
