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

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>>

Scoop Review Of Books:
Looking Back

Writing a memoir that appeals to a broad readership is a difficult undertaking. As an experienced communicator, Lloyd Geering keeps the reader’s interest alive through ten chapters (or portholes) giving views of different aspects of his life in 20th-century New Zealand. More>>

Scoop Review Of Books: Purple (and Violet) Prose

This is the second recent conjoint publication by Reeve and Stapp; all to do with esoteric, arcane and obscure vocabulary – sesquipedalian, anyone – and so much more besides. Before I write further, I must stress that the book is an equal partnership between words and images and that one cannot thrive without the other. More>>
