10dd presents Women Are From Mars

10dd presents Women Are From Mars

Attack of the 50ft Choir

Wellington’s all-female vocal band 10dd is teaming with some of our finest female musicians for a special production of science fiction theme music. Aptly staged in the iconic Hannah Playhouse,Women are from Mars puts a new twist on film favourites like Star Wars and The Rocky Horror Picture Show alongside TV greats like X-Files, Twilight Zone and Red Dwarf. It tackles the sublime in pop icons Flash and Rocket Man and the ridiculous in The Jetsons and Star Trekkin’.

Women are from Mars will appeal to all age groups with familiar songs that have permeated our culture, in some cases for decades. But the delivery will be fresh – from Bulgarian choral to Deep Purple rock, Women are from Mars will leave the audience with a smile on their faces and a tune on their lips.

Mars Attacks!

Women are from Mars is produced by award winning, charting musician and 10dd founder Julie Lamb. Julie’s three albums have been recognised nationally and internationally with songs selected for global compilations in Australia, the UK and the USA; she has been a featured artist in the Netherlands, the USA and New Zealand, received an award in the Pacific Songwriting Competition; and received silver medals from the Beat100 A&R team for her Waterproof music video. She is also an experienced performance director having run large, multi-band performances including the annual Breast Cancer Network NZ fundraiser Green for the Pink; Music Month Muster; and festival soundstages.

Julie will be joined by the all-female ensemble including the vibrant vocal band 10dd featuring Ann Pacey, Annette Esquenet, Jacky Dwane, Janet Galloway, Janice Tossman, Jude Madill, Sharon McLuskie, Kate Richardson, Kathrine Christiansen, Lisa Cheney, Louise Caig and Miranda Turner. They will be joined by acclaimed Wellington musicians Lisa Tagaloa (bass), Olivia Campion (drums), Christine White (guitar), Amity Alton-Lee (saxophone/Clarinet) and Shan Jordan (keyboards).

A million to one, but still they come
