Remember the days when the princess was rescued by Prince Charming and everyone lived happily every after? When wolves were big and bad and lured us into the woods? The days when Spiderman or Wonder Woman would save the world, weekly at 7:30? We do, and have made a show about them.

That show is Exposè , a quirky, funny, powerful and accessible new work from Fighting Fit Productions.

Made up of a collection of childhood fairy stories and adult understanding, it contains the stories we have all grown up with. But it’s not just nostalgia and cultural mix. Using the base of superheroes and fairy tales, today’s issues are explored and probed.

The show is choreographed by Declan Patrick, who has produced original Kiwi work in New Zealand and overseas over the last 12 years. It is designed by Bronwyn Bent, whose recent work included the Red Mole Production: Unbearable Journeys and the Wellington Summer Shakespeare production: The Tempest.

The cast includes a huge cultural mix: English performer Louise Fielder, well known through her work as a dance educator for the Royal New Zealand Ballet, Kiwi Nicola Mischevski, creative dance artist and teacher, American samba performer Jenny Bloomfield and actor-dancer Rhys Latton.

Exposè is an opportunity to experience dance in an enjoyable and understandable format, where superheroes are performers and performers are, in the end, real people.
