The Way We Fall

The Way We Fall
Choreographed by Jessie McCall

Not your average Museum exhibit-

A DELECTABLE STUMBLE INTO CONTEMPORARY DANCE, DIALOGUE
…AND ICECREAM

Following a sell out Auckland season, The Way We Fall will inhabit the magnificent Museum of Wellington City & Sea, for 3 nights only as part of the 2014 NZ Fringe Festival.

The Way We Fall witnesses the humanity, hilarity and horror of falling in, falling out and of course falling over. “Painfully familiar and gleefully relatable”, the work fuses dance, theatre & design to create an accessible, hilarious yet moving experience.

This is the latest work for up and coming choreographer and ALL YOU CAN EAT founder, Jessie McCall. “Director Jessie McCall is a gentle force to be reckoned with. Her choreographic ingenuity is imaginative and precise.” Felicity Molloy-Theatreview.

The Way We Fall has been created in collaboration with the cast of highly regarded NZ dancers: Julie van Renen (Lazy Suzy Boy), Anitra Hayday (Vospertron), Grace Woollett (Addicted to Distraction) and Sarah Elsworth (How To Make Friends and Still Appear Normal).

The beautiful historically rich Museum of Wellington City & Sea will provide a magical experience for audiences. With only 3 shows in this intimate setting, tickets are limited!

“Similarly well-developed is Jessie McCall's captivating, well-paced, amusing and punchy mix of dialogue and dance… the performers give the gift of quality in imaginative and evocative vocabularies.” Dr Linda Ashley, Theatreview

Gordon Campbell: On Chuck Berry (And James Comey, And Bill English)

Back when many people were still treating rock’n’roll as a passing fad – was calypso going to be the new thing? – Chuck Berry knew that it had changed popular music forever. What is even more astonishing is that this 30-ish black r&b musician from a middle class family in St Louis could manage to recreate the world of white teenagers, at a time when the very notion of a “teenager” had just been invented.

Howard Davis Review:
The Baroque Fusion Of L'arpeggiata

Named after a toccata by German composer Girolamo Kapsberger, L'Arpeggiata produces its unmistakable sonority mainly from the resonance of plucked strings, creating a tightly-woven acoustic texture that is both idiosyncratic and immediately identifiable. Director Christina Pluhar engenders this distinctive tonality associated with the ensemble she founded in 2000 by inviting musicians and vocalists from around the world to collaborate on specific projects illuminated by her musicological research.

Scoop Review Of Books: We’re All Lab Rats

A couple of years ago, there were reports that Silicon Valley executives were sending their children to tech-free schools. It was a story that dripped of irony: geeks in the heart of techno-utopia rejecting their ideology when it came to their own kids. But the story didn’t catch on, and an awkward question lingered. Why were the engineers of the future desperate to part their gadgets from their children? More>>
