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

Howard Davis: Never Too Old To Rock & Roll - Jethro Tull

As Greil Marcus recently observed in an NYRB review of Robbie Robertson's autobiographical Testimony, in rock and roll there is always an origin story. In the case of Jethro Tull founder Ian Anderson, he claims to have been influenced by his father's big band and jazz record collections and the emergence of rock music in the 1950s, but became disenchanted with the "show biz" style of early US stars like Elvis Presley...

Howard Davis Review: The Contemporary Relevance Of Denial

Denial has all the hallmarks of a riveting courtroom drama. Based on a 1996 British libel case that author David Irving brought against Lipstadt, the movie has been criticized as flat and stagey, but it nonetheless conveys a visceral clarity of vision and sense of overwhelming urgency. More>>
