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

NZSO Review: Stephen Hough Is Perfection-Plus

He took risks, and leant into the music when required. But you also felt that every moment of his playing made sense in the wider picture of the piece. Playing alongside him, the NZSO were wonderful as ever, and their guest conductor, Gustavo Gimeno, coaxed from them a slightly darker, edgier sound than I’m used to hearing. More>>

Howard Davis Review: King Lear At Circa

In order to celebrate it's 40th birthday, it is perhaps fitting that Circa Theatre should pick a production of 'King Lear,' since it's also somewhat fortuitously Shakespeare's 400th anniversary. If some of the more cerebral poetry is lost in Michael Hurst's streamlined, full throttle production, it's more than made up for by plenty of lascivious violence designed to entertain the groundlings.
