Beautiful ladies doing ugly things

Beautiful ladies doing ugly things


Get set to laugh as Aussie trio Spider Dance bring the funny to the Gryphon Theatre this Fringe.

A trio of lovely Melbourne ladies are crossing the ditch to make their New Zealand debut this February.

Keen to share their special blend of cheeky storytelling, offbeat comedy and playful improv, Anna Renzenbrink, Amy Moule and Merrilee McCoy are excited about their inclusion in this year’s Fringe program.

“Merrilee is a former Wellington resident and was keen to bring to us to the Fringe so we are blindly trusting her with our holiday savings.” says Renzenbrink. “We're simply looking forward to showing Fringe audiences a good time and doing what we do best surprising them and ourselves!”

Spider Dance pays tribute in name and spirit to the infamous Lola Montez the Lady Gaga of the Victorian Goldrush, who performed her radical and risque ‘spider dance’ for eager gold miners back in the day. Like Lola, these ladies are sure to entertain you with their charming smiles, off key songs and the delicious promise of a (proverbial) flash of the knickers.

Each show is different, with segments and material every night. “We want to keep things fast and fresh,” Merrilee explains. “So you may see solo scenes, weird and wonderful duos, or an allin brawl it’s going to be tons of fun!”
