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.

  • Gordon Campbell: On The Best Albums Of 2016

    OK, I’m not even going to try and rationalise this surrender to a ‘best of’ listicle. Still…maybe there is an argument for making some semblance of narrative order out of a year that brought us Trump, Brexit and the deaths of Prince, David Bowie, Leonard Cohen and Alan Vega, who I missed just as much as the Big Three. So without further ado….oh, but first a word from the sponsor More>>
