Target Audience: Secondary

Discipline: Dance

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

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

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.

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.

Tim Bray Productions 2019 season

Organisation: Tim Bray Productions

Where: The Pumphouse Theatre, Takapuna, Auckland

When: 2019

Regions: Auckland

Target Audience: Primary

Discipline: Multi-Arts, Drama, Music

Type of Event: Performance

Contact: Tim Bray Productions(info@tbp.org.nz)

Tim Bray Productions is delighted to announce its exciting season of children’s theatre shows for 2019. The company is entering its 28th year of bringing entertaining and educational theatre experiences to young people and next year’s line-up is sure to be enjoyed by young and old.

The season kicks off in April with a favourite Kiwi story - The Man Whose Mother was a Pirate by Margaret Mahy, which is a rollicking and funny pirate adventure. The show tells the story of Sam, an ordinary man who wears an ordinary suit and who works in an ordinary office. But his mother is an extraordinary mother – she’s a pirate and yearns to see the sea again. Hilarity ensues as they head to sea together with lots of opportunities for audience involvement.

Next up in July is the much anticipated We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury that has become a classic chant-aloud tale. Follow and join in the family’s excitement as they wade through the grass, splash through the river and squelch through the mud in search of a bear. What a surprise awaits them in the cave on the other side of the dark forest!

For September/October audiences will enjoy The Little Yellow Digger, which is based on the series of children’s picture books about The Little Yellow Digger by Betty and Alan Gilderdale. When the little yellow digger gets stuck in the mud, a range of bigger diggers are sent to finish the job with entertaining results. Stories featured in the show are The Little Yellow Digger saves the Whale, The Little Yellow Digger at the Zoo, The Little Yellow Digger, The Little Yellow Digger and the Bones, The Little Yellow Digger goes to School.

December sees the return of Tim Bray Productions’ beloved Christmas story, The Santa Claus Show ’19. It tells the tale of Kelly and Alana who are best friends and decide to write to Santa Claus. But Kelly sends the longest list of things that a child wants for Christmas that Santa has ever seen. Santa flies Kelly to the North Pole so she can learn for herself the true meaning of Christmas.

Each show will take to the stage at the Pumphouse Theatre during 2019 with both an education season during the last week of term and a school holiday season for two weeks. Performance times are 10:30am and 1pm daily for education performances and 10:30am and 2pm for school holiday’s performances. There are also New Zealand Sign Language interpreted performances and audio described performances available for each show.

A Teachers Resource Guide packed with cross-curricula classroom activities to do before and after your visit to the show is available for each show and a special ticket offer with one free teacher's ticket per 10 students. Enhance your class or school’s visit to the show with a Theatre Workshop. Now available with drama, literature and art activities, Q & A with Tim Bray (diary permitting) and cast, and a backstage tour.

The first is at Long Bay College on Friday 5th and 6th April and the second at Waiuku College on Monday 8th April.

It is great that nearly 100 New Zealand teachers have already had been involved in training over the past two years with all being extremely positive about the benefits they have gained from the course and also the resources that they have been able to use immediately with their classes. Several teachers were so inspired they followed up their training with workshops in Melbourne while another has taken a sabbatical to study this teaching approach further.

We hope to have much more primary and secondary music teachers involved in the training next year and also that those who have already had training may enjoy the “recharge” day on Saturday 6th April.
