The Pineapple Jukebox Dance Show

Media Release

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

INSERT COIN AND CHOOSE YOUR DANCE!

Pineapple Productions presents THE PINEAPPLE JUKEBOX DANCE SHOW

Directed by the choreographer Julie Anterrieu

Have you ever dreamed of having the power to choose the performances you want to see? The Pineapple Jukebox Dance Show lets you do just that from February 20th to 23rd 2012.

To be performed in Auckland for the first time, The Pineapple Jukebox Dance Show is a show like no other brought to you by the dance company Pineapple Productions. Created by the French Choreographer Julie Anterrieu, this interactive dance show will be on for four evenings at the Q Theatre early next year as part of the Auckland Fringe Festival 2013.

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. 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 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 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!

Trained in jazz, contemporary, modern dance, ballet, musical theatre and lindy hop, the Pineapple dancers are certainly talented and also full of surprises. The dynamic dancers switch from French Cancan to Classical Ballet, fast-paced Charleston to slow acrobatic chair moves, vintage high heeled pin up to grunge contemporary, and this is all skillfully achieved in a matter of minutes. They are crazy enough to refine these diverse pieces, unsure of which ones they will perform and what the running order will be.

The Jukebox Dance Show presents a different set every time, making each experience truly unique.

It's simple. Insert coin. Choose your dance. Then sit back and enjoy!

This show is part of the Auckland Fringe Festival, which runs from 15th February to 10th March 2013. For more information on the Auckland Fringe Festival 2013 go to www.aucklandfringe.co.nz
