Target Audience: Secondary

Discipline: Dance

Contact: James(james@blackgrace.co.nz)

Exploring masculinity through a Pacific lens, Crying Men is a vital new work choreographed by NZ icon and Arts Laureate Neil Ieremia. This richly textured conversation premieres in Auckland, the largest Polynesian city in the world.

We are excited to offer Secondary Schools a special price of $10* per ticket for our matinee performance, Friday the 7th September, 12:30pm.

Date: Friday 7th September 2018
Time: 12:30pm
Venue: ASB Waterfront Theatre, Wynyard Quarter
Duration: approx. 65min (no interval)

Tickets for this matinee performance go on sale on 2nd July. Keep an eye out on the day, as we will email you with information on how to purchase these tickets.

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.

NZAHTA Conference 2018

Regions: Auckland

Target Audience: Secondary

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.

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.
