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!”

Scoop Review Of Books: The Typewriter Factory

I finished reading Don’t Dream It’s Over not long after it came out last August. I even started writing a review, which took something of an ‘I’m sorry people, but it’s already over’ approach. I’ve been pretty negative about journalism as it’s practiced in the mainstream (or MSM, or corporate media or liberal media or whatever terminology you prefer) for quite some time (see for example Stop the Press), and I believe the current capitalist media model is destructive and can’t be reformed.

Howard Davis Review: Dick Frizzell At The Solander Gallery

One of the most influential and celebrated contemporary Pop artists working in New Zealand, Dick Frizzell is mostly known for his appropriation of kitsch Kiwiana icons, which he often incorporates into cartoon-like paintings and lithographs. Not content with adhering to one particular style, he likes to adopt consciously unfashionable styles of painting, in a manner reminiscent of Roy Lichtenstein. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
