Straight Laced

ChoreoCo is a new initiative by FootnoteNZ to provide an opportunity and short term contract for a small company of dancers. These dancers will be selected from the renowned three week intensive Choreolab held in January 2014.

FootnoteNZ present ChoreoCo’s debut performance of Straight Laced as part of the New Zealand Fringe Festival. Choreography will be by Craig Bary who is the masterclass tutor at Choreolab and will follow on as guest choreographer for this production project.

Straight Laced will look into the world of sex and sexuality and the effect of a society dominated by the ‘straight lifestyle’ on decisions we make about our sexuality and relationships.

We are thrilled to announce this as the first new initiative of the new structure of FootnoteNZ. FootnoteNZ is a newly formed production company with an objective to provide support, space and technical expertise for a range of dance projects that result from submissions from the industry.

Performances of Straight Laced, a new work by Craig Bary, will be at BATS Theatre March 2nd – 8th 2014 as part of the New Zealand Fringe Festival.

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>>
