Purple Rainbow

DYNAMOTION Dance Troupe and The Basement Theatre Present…


Purple Rainbow


The Gays are getting married and the irrepressibly straight Roberto senses something ominous in the air. The LGBT community is out in droves and this ain’t no Pride Parade. Can Roberto escape with his sexuality unscathed?

Come out for the night with Auckland's favourite comedy dance troupe, DYNAMOTION. You might remember TERROR ISLAND. You probably loved TERROR PLANET. You are definitely going to get queer sensations from their latest dance fest PURPLE RAINBOW!!!

Another colour coordinated hour of rhythmic hips, robot arms and spirit fingers with the coolest, campest soundtrack this side of the Bombays. Hitting The Basement like a big rainbow meteor for the PRIDE Festival 2014.

The Gay Apocalypse is upon us. What will you do to survive?


Created + Choreographed + Directed by Lara Fischel-Chisholm & Thomas Sainsbury

Featuring the DYNAMOTION dancers: Kate Barnett, Lara Fischel-Chisholm, Ash Jones, Roberto Nascimento, Kate Simmonds, Thomas Sainsbury, Marion Shortt & Dan Veint.

Simon Nathan reviews 'Zealandia: Our Continent Revealed': The idea that New Zealand is part of a large submerged continent is not new... There was renewed interest in the extent of offshore New Zealand from the 1970s onwards with the start of offshore drilling for oil and gas, and this was given impetus by a UN agreement which allowed countries to claim an Extended Continental Shelf (ECS).

Scoop Review Of Books: Don’t Eat The Fish

On 'The Catch' by Michael Field What the ecologically edible lists don’t appear to take into account – and they should – is slavery... It’s not an easy read, but it’s definitely near the top of my listicle of “5 Political Books You Must Read This Year”. More>>

Gordon Campbell: Classics - Tales From Moominvalley
Can’t speak for the reading end of it but the Moomins ( or maybe the story about Margaret Wise Brown) were the most enjoyable subject to think about and write about during these whole first 50 issues of Werewolf. For that reason – and because the Moomins always reward re-reading – I’ve decided to reprint it. The only added element is a link to an interesting hour long documentary about Tove Jansson. More>>
