Skindiana Jones and the Raiders of the Lost Harlot
(an Indiana Jones burlesque)

GDP Productions, a Philadelphia-based theater company specializing in making cool, twisted, and cheap theater, is set to bring its unique aesthetic to Wellington in March. Past projects include Sex & Violence, a violence and burlesque themed cabaret, Ubu Roi, Alfred Jarry’s warped French classic, and A Study In Pink, a Sherlock Holmes burlesque. (Check out http://www.gdpproductions.com to learn more).

Raiders of the Lost Harlot is the latest in our ‘burlesque for the thinking man and the drinking man’ series, which has produced 5 successful shows over the past three years. With these productions, GDP seeks to blur the lines between traditional theatre performance and burlesque, providing satire, nuance, and production value in addition to the traditional glitz and tease typically associated with such shows.

Our burlesque shows (and this show in particular) features much more than just burlesque routines; there’s puppetry, stage combat, pole dancing, and several other surprises along the way. Featuring the talents of Andre Corey, Willow Noir, Gracie Hart, Foxie Hart, Laura Saurus, Alexander Sparrow, and the musical talents of the Victory Rollers. Raiders of the Lost Harlot is written by Cubby Altobelli and directed by James Kiesel.

Performances occur March 5th – 7th at 8pm March 8th at 10pm at the Fringe Bar (http://www.thefringebar.co.nz), 26 - 32 Allen Street.

(Drink specials will be available!) Tickets are $20 for general admission ($15 for students / industry members), with $30 VIP seating available. Online tickets are available through Eventfinda at http://bit.do/skindy

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>>
