ANITA HUTCHINS and THE ONCUNSCIOUS CORP presents
‘ELLA & WILL’ a dance theatre show

Media release – December 2012

A Gothic Fairytale, A Love Affair, A Magical Experiment...

‘Ella & Will’ created by Anita Hutchins will premier at the 2013 Wellington Fringe Festival. 7pm 15th – 19th of February at Whitireia Theatre, 25-27 Vivian Street Wellington. Duration approx. 80mins.

Dance, text, film, and live music combine to tell this fascinating Gothic Fairytale inspired by several 20th century occult novels, including ‘Moonchild’ written by occultist Aleister Crowley.

Anita’s brand new work consists of an original story that has been devised over the past six years by herself and her scriptwriter Donna Banicevich Gera.

“I love stories, and the thought provoking story of ‘Ella & Will’ is one that I have been wanting to tell for a long time. With its Gothic Fairytale style, and themes of ritual magic it is a story very well suited to the medium of dance theatre – it is a lot of fun to choreograph!"

The show is brought to life by a talented and acclaimed cast of dancers. The headlining performers are Anna Flaherty, Will Barling (Auckland) and Tanemahuta Gray. The show’s original musical score is composed and performed by Wellington Jazz musician Mostyn Cole.
