'How to Universe' premiers in Wellington

'How to Universe' premiers in Wellington


'How to Universe' premieres as part of Wellington Fringe 2014. Three performers, three imaginations and one book. Anything could happen.

Three performers combine their skills and passion for juggling, illusion and physical performance to create their own circus show – ‘How to Universe’.

Zane and Degge, the juggling duo seen on New Zealand’s Got Talent 2012, join forces with Imogen, a talented aerial artist.

'How to Universe' – the one book you must read if you're planning to create your own universe - has found its way into the living room of three young performers. This bizarre and highly skilled show invites the audience on a journey into the world of modern circus, as only these three imaginations can create. This super physical & highly entertaining performance includes everything from an aerial hoop, and juggling clubs, to ping pong balls, and a leaf blower. "The show is a little bit bizarre, a little bit silly and a lot of fun” says Zane.

The cast and crew of 'How to Universe' consists of three Wellington performers Zane Jarvie, Degge Jarvie and Imogen Stone.

Zane and Degge were born into juggling. “We have been juggling longer than I can remember, I blame it on my parents,” says Zane. Over the years they have become among the best jugglers in the country performing nationwide and reaching the final of New Zealand's Got Talent. They enjoy bringing humour into their highly skilled juggling, “They are the Flight of the Conchords of Juggling”- Matt Hall, internationally renowned juggler.

Imogen Stone has been involved in performance arts from a young age and is known for her musicality and physicality. While still at school, she performed professionally for corporate events from Auckland to Dunedin, until an invitation to tour with Circus Aotearoa along with Zane tempted her to run away to the circus in December 2012. “Touring with a Big Top circus was a lifetime experience, truly unforgettable.” says Imogen. "I’m looking forward to bringing ‘How to Universe’ to Wellington.”

Combining their imaginations and talents the three have collaborated to create an original production for the Fringe festival.

Scoop Review Of Books: No Longer An Island

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).

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>>
