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!

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.
