Sea of Love: Songs of the 60s & 70s

Sea of Love: Songs of the 60s & 70s

‘Don’t mess with a woman!’ Crows Feet launch into their latest dance show with a staunch rendition of Helen Reddy’s hit song from the 1970s. Many of the Crows grew up watching the magnificent Emma Peel in the TV show The Avengers and the dance pays tribute to her and also the self-defence courses for women that were popular in the 1970s.

The Crows are re-visiting the songs of their youth. They have been in the attic rummaging through old boxes and trunks, hauling out the clothes they used to wear – kaftans, flared trousers, Indian cotton tops, crocheted sleeveless tops and long flowing dresses.

What is remarkable is the fact they still fit! These dancing Crows have kept their figures.

Audiences are in for a treat as the Crows dance their hearts out to Nancy Sinatra, Roberta Flack, Dusty Springfield, Janis Joplin, Joni Mitchell, Aretha Franklin and many more. New Zealand’s very own Dinah Lee and The Chicks also make an appearance.

The Beatles song ‘Yesterday’ will be sung by two of the Crows, accompanied by flautist Michelle Scullion, and with dancer Sumara Fraser.

This witty, fun and heart-warming show will be staged at Expressions Arts & Entertainment Centre in Upper, a favourite venue of the Collective with its big stage and beautiful facilities.

The café on site will be preparing tasty morsels from the 60s and 70s so the audience can get in the mood.

Thirty women, aged between thirty-eight and seventy-three, from Wellington, the Hutt Valley and the Kapiti Coast will appear on stage.

Friday 31st August at 8pm
Saturday 1st September at 2pm
Sunday 2nd September at 2pm

Bookings: Expressions Arts and Entertainment Centre
Ph (04) 527 2168, www.expressions.org.nz
Tickets: $25 general admission, $20 concession and groups

Howard Davis: Joel Coen's Monochromatic Macbeth

The Bard of Avon may well be smirking up the sleeves of his lace doublet at the irony of Will Smith's Oscar debacle, but now that the initial furore has dissipated, it's worth revisiting the movie for which Denzel Washington was also nominated. More>>

Howard Davis: Kenneth Branagh’s Black & White Belfast

Branagh has assembled a wonderful cast, including Ciarán Hinds, a gently formidable actor who well deserves his Oscar nomination, and Judi Dench, who steals every scene she’s in. More>>


Howard Davis: Dennis Villeneuve’s Dune - A Brief History

So many elements of Herbert’s novel have since become tropes of popular SciFi that Villeneuve’s film sometimes seems deceptively derivative. What makes all this nonsense essential viewing is his astonishing visual sensibility. More>>


Howard Davis: Jill Trevelyan's Rita Angus

Although Angus has become one of Aotearoa’s best-loved painters, the story of her life remained little known and poorly understood before Jill Trevelyan's acclaimed and revelatory biography, which has been republished by Te Papa press. More>>
