Wellington Freelance Dance Festival on the Fringe!

One Night at Thistle

Fresh from the inaugural Wellington Freelance Dance Festival in November 2012 at Matchbox Studios, the Wellington Freelance Dance Collective take time out from their busy Fringe schedule to present One Night at Thistle, a night of new and used dance works.

Bounce your sun-tanned limbs up the stairs to Thistle Hall for a feast of Dance Mayhem and other Awesome Art Stuff too.

The Wellington Freelance Dance Collective staged their own Dance Festival in 2012, after having emerged from the dark, damp nights of a Wellington Winter, from WOW, Project Born, Empress Stilt Dance, and Back of the Bus with Java Dance Company,

2013 sees dancers from the Collective performing for Fringe Festival shows The Lady Garden (The Naked Brastrap), Never Before: A Colony for Urban Change (Urbantramper), Ella and Will (Anita Hutchins) and Feet of Clay (Livie MacPhedran).

Thank goodness somewhere in there they have time to dance and to create for One Night at Thistle for your dance-viewing pleasure.

Review: The Magic Flute - Magic Moments

Max Rashbrooke: Mozart’s The Magic Flute is an extraordinary tale, blending a story of great solemnity, of elegant music and Masonic virtue overcoming hatred and discord, with elements of extreme silliness and pure fantasy. .. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: ‘Lovely Swans Of Art’

On Cillia McQueen's 'In a Slant Light': Diary-keeping forms the basis of much of this memoir – as with earlier poems – and we are led gracefully through the waves of her life as she sails through both rough and smooth waters. More>>

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
