The Rock n Roll Circus Is Heating Up Your Wintery Nights

The Rock n Roll Circus Is Heating Up Your Wintery Nights

Newton, Auckland – 12 July 2014, Aloha! 1950 was one of our most popular shows in our 2012 season so we’ve revamped it and bought it back for another round of vintage beach party fun in July!

Aloha! 1950 will see seasoned burlesque and cabaret performers and rising talent strut their stuff on stage as part of a fun show with a vintage beach party flavour. With a bumping and grinding mix of booty shakin’, tassel twirling and fire entertainment, this show is sure to leave your loins ablaze.

Hosting the night is the feisty Miss Elvis, Auckland’s only female Elvis impersonator. She is joined by a cast of local talent including international burlesque artiste Amourous Ava who is recently back from performing in the Australian Burlesque Festival.

The audience is encouraged to dress up in theme and even take to the stage to try their hand at a bit of burlesque. We have prizes from Rita Sue Clothing and Wendy Syme Costumier to give away on the night and tickets for our final show of 2014 up for grabs.

With acts by some award winning and international burlesque performers this show is going to go off with a bang!

Tickets are available through www.eventfinder.co.nz.

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.

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>>

Howard Davis: Get It On, Bang A Gong, Pt I

Several readers have recently inquired about the significance of the image that accompanies my by-line. While the man-bun is long gone, I still incorporate the sound of the gong in my Kundalini Yoga classes. More>>
