MEDIA RELEASE
For immediate release

Seating You
A Fabulous Fundraiser

Circa Theatre is very excited to announce the upcoming fundraising variety performance, Seating You, which will take place in Circa One for one night only, Sunday, 31 August.

Directed by Lyndee-Jane Rutherford with music by Michael Nicholas Williams, Seating You will feature performances by some of New Zealand’s top theatre artists: George Henare, Michael Hurst, Jennifer Ward-Lealand, Ray Henwood, Jeffrey Thomas and Awhimai Fraser.

“I am thrilled to bring together this group of talented New Zealand artists for one unforgettable evening of entertainment,” said actor, director and Circa Council member Lyndee-Jane. “Three of our performers are coming from Auckland just for this event, and Circa is thrilled to have the support of all of these incredible actors."

The evening will include Ne me Quitte pas performed by Jennifer Ward-Lealand, excerpts from Shakespeare performed by Michael Hurst, Dylan Thomas performed by New Zealand's favourite Welsh actors Jeffrey Thomas and Ray Henwood, and songs performed by our beloved George Henare.

All proceeds from Seating You will go towards the Millionth Bum Campaign to replace the seats in Circa One, expected to happen in early 2015. Ticket sales have already reached 50%, with two weeks to go before the event.

Circa Theatre would like to thank the Museum Art Hotel and Gladstone Vineyard for their support of Seating You.

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>>
