As three children play by the ocean a large conch shell starts to whisper stories of the sea. Fluorescent fish float under a starry sky and a magical character appears in a rickety boat to tell his fishy tale.

Our mythical story invites the audience to look to where the sky meets the sea for the answers. In a fusion of song, dance, puppets, te reo Māori and English, Songs of the Sea Waiata O Te Moana unfolds the mysteries and myths of where the first fish came from.

From the Sun and Moon (Ra and Marama), the Milky Way (Ite Ika o te Rangi), to the Great Shaper of the Universe come a myriad of marine creatures. The audience floats in a starry sky and dives into a great underwater world as music and stage wizardry transform their day.

The fabulously imaginative Songs of the Sea features colourful & sparkly puppets of artist Sue Hill and infectiously catchy music by Stephen Gallagher to weave together four stories of the deep, including how the children of Te Ika Rā, the lonely sunfish and Te Ika Marama the bright moonfish, got their rainbow colours.

With previous seasons in New Zealand & Australia this beautiful production returns for a national tour throughout Aotearoa to delight children with tales of the ocean told in English and te reo Māori.

Beautiful, playful and a joy to watch this play will strike chords of wonder in younger audiences.

OrphEus – a dance opera
Michael Parmenter with the New Zealand dance Company

OrphEus – a dance opera is a bold new work, drawing on a ravishing musical score, including Rameau and Charpentier, reflecting a period during which the ancient Greek hero invoked a harmonious cosmos and a hierarchical political order. Since then, Orpheus has come to represent art’s power to transcend suffering and death.
In this richly layered, epic dance work, Parmenter brings these contending perspectives into conflict and dialogue. Orpheus confronts the power of music and voice in both the personal and the political realms, revealing, in this familiar story of love and loss, the tensions between seduction and restraint, harmony and disorder.
Combining the power of dance, live music and theatre, Parmenter’s incredible vision is brought to life by The New Zealand Dance Company, performing alongside Grammy Award-winning American tenor Aaron Sheehan, baroque ensemble Latitude 37 and special guests.
NZDC’s Artistic Director Shona McCullagh draws together a superlative creative team including Tracy Grant Lord, John Verryt, Nik Janiurek, Keren Chiaroni and David Downes.
Through the lens of this mythic yet deeply personal tragedy, OrphEus thrillingly stages the eternal challenge of the artist – to seek the familiar or venture into dangerous uncharted territory.
Co-produced by The New Zealand Dance Company, Auckland Arts Festival and the New Zealand Festival.
“Michael Parmenter’s name is synonymous with bold and innovative contemporary dance … challenging, thought provoking and fulfilling.”- The Press

GISELLE
Akram Khan with the English National Ballet

In acclaimed choreographer Akram Khan’s vital reimagining of Giselle, the classical ballet’s tale of love, betrayal and redemption is transported to the 21st century; the peasants of the story are now outcast migrant factory workers and the essential themes of class and dislocation are given a bracing contemporary relevance. His daring aesthetic is carried beautifully by the English National Ballet’s celebrated company of dancers.

Under the vision of Artistic Director and Lead Principal Dancer Tamara Rojo, this bold commission also boasts an impressive sense of scale. This is a massive production rarely seen in New Zealand bringing over 100 artists and crew with a monumental set designed by Oscar-winner Tim Yip (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon). The Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra will bring to life Vincenzo Lamagna’s haunting new score.

Khan’s daring aesthetic is carried beautifully by English National Ballet’s celebrated company of dancers. Their feats range from sensational large-scale group dances to intensely intimate performances in the ballet’s memorable second act, where Giselle returns from the supernatural underworld with other spirits seeking revenge on their lovers.

Thursday 1 March & Friday 2 March
7.30pm ASB Theatre, Aotea Centre

More information on Crying Men

Through dance, Crying Men traces the journey of three generations of Pacific men, living in a new land and dealing with the impact of the loss of a matriarch who brought balance to the traditional expectations of masculinity with compassion, tolerance and strength.

Utilising gesture, elements of traditional Pacific storytelling, song and dance, the production sees Ieremia collaborate with acclaimed Pacific playwright Victor Rodger for the first time. Rodger has created an original narrative framework which underpins the work. Black Grace has commissioned new music from hip-hop legends Matthew Faiumu Salapu aka Anonymouz and Andy Morton aka Submariner; their work will drive percussively powerful movement from an impressive cast of dancers and singers.

Please Note: This work includes themes of physical and psychological abuse.

Q&A (15min)
Immediately following the performance, students will have a unique chance to gain real insight through a Q&A with the Black Grace Dancers.

For enquiries please email james@blackgrace.co.nz or phone (09) 630 0835.

Fa’afetai lava,
Black Grace

NZAHTA Conference 2018

Organisation: New Zealand History Teachers’ Association

When: 9:15 – 3:00, 24 August 2018

Regions: Auckland

Target Audience: Secondary

Discipline: Multi-Arts

Type of Event: Other

Contact: Barbara Ormond(b.ormond@auckland.ac.nz)

Registrations for the NZAHTA Conference on 24 August in Auckland are rolling in and we look forward to seeing you there. The programme for the day is
• Associate Professor Erin Griffey on Renaissance art
• Dr. Ngarino Ellis on Teaching Approaches for Maori Art
• Dr. Caroline Vercoe on raising the profile of Art History through introducing Art History to junior students
• Teaching Strategies for Revision and using IT in art history classrooms
• Looking to the Future – the NCEA Review
• Workshop – sharing ideas for teaching in different areas of study

Please find attached the Conference Registration form. The conference cost is $120.00 – morning tea and lunch provided. If your accounts department requires an invoice please e-mail me and I will send one through.

Subscriptions
A letter with the subscription form is being posted shortly to all schools which offer Art History. I have also attached the subscription form to this e-mail.

NZAHTA Journal
Under preparation and soon to be available is a journal for subscribers to NZAHTA. The journal contains a range of teaching strategies including IT, collaborative learning, essay writing, Scholarship, and analysis strategies. It also contains internal assessment tasks sample student responses. The journal will be e-mailed to members. It is the intention of the NZAHTA committee to provide several journals each year.

Scholarship Workshop
Regrettably we are unable to provide a Scholarship workshop for students in Auckland this year. It was the committee’s intent to hold one but it was found to be very difficult to find an appropriate date to hold it. This has occurred because the Year 13 Art History examination is very early this year and is too close to the time when art folios are due in.

NCEA Submissions
Our voice needs to be heard. Submissions on NCEA are being received until 16 September and you can either complete a quick survey, or a more detailed submission using the following links.

Y&H Tours 2019 – I Am Māori

Organisation: The Young and Hungry Arts Trust

When: 30 April – 21 June, 2019

Regions: National

Target Audience: Secondary

Discipline: Drama

Type of Event: Performance

Contact: The Young and Hungry Arts Trust(info@youngandhungry.org.nz)

In the 50-minute no-tech programme brought directly to your school by Y&H Tours (A Country of Two Halves, OUTLIERS), I AM MĀORI showcases extracts from plays by Māori playwrights.

We are thrilled to have Nancy Brunning (Ngāti Raukawa, Ngāi Tūhoe) as the director and dramaturg of what will be another excellent show for your Drama and English students.

Nancy is an actress, writer and director who has won awards in film and television and has made a major contribution to the growth of Māori arts, including acting as a dramaturg for some of New Zealand’s most celebrated Māori playwrights.

Nancy says she would aspire her storyteller super power to be matakite/seeing into the future. “Ki te kahore he whakakitenga, ka ngaro te iwi - without foresight or vision the people will be lost”.

The programme will touch on topics such as family issues, politics and land rights, with a common thread being ordinary people doing extraordinary things to change their world, no matter who they are or their background. It is the connection to their culture that gives them great strength to fight their battles and find the hero within.

I AM MĀORI will be touring schools around New Zealand from April 30th to June 21nd.

The programme will feature at least one extract from a playwright on the NZQA prescribed reading list, with all extracts confirmed by early term 1, 2019.
Booking information and a proposed tour route are now available on the website. Booking enquiries can be made directly via me, Natasha at production@youngandhungry.org.nz or 04 385 8227

Stay tuned for more information being released in the coming months.
Curriculum support

Along with the performance at your school, your booking includes a study guide with:

• A master script
• Playwright bios and play synopses
• a digital filming of the work which can be accessed anytime throughout the year after the performance (available in July),
• notes and information from the creative team,
• and pre and post show activities and exercises tailored to exam requirements.

Y&H Tours (Formerly EnsembleImpact: A Country of Two Halves, OUTLIERS)
Y&H Tours takes New Zealand theatre to secondary schools, universities and youth theatre groups around the country. Created to support the drama curriculum, it showcases a themed collection of New Zealand playwrights, tells New Zealand stories, addresses issues that are relevant to New Zealand youth, and employs young New Zealand actors at the start of their professional careers.

Performed in traverse by four young professional actors, the show requires no lighting or sound set up. It is ideally suited to Drama students in years 10 -13 and has a Q and A built into the programme.
