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

“A beautiful and intelligent remaking of the beloved classic.” - The New York Times

Zip! The blue thingee gets put in the blue spot.
Ping! The green-majig goes to the green spot.
Bash! The yellow-whozit is placed in the yellow spot.

Three curious characters live a busy life in a world where everything has a purpose and place… until one day, an Odd character arrives and things start to change. Suddenly their world is full of things that don’t belong anywhere! What will the Odd One Out do next and will anything ever be the same again?

Odd One Out is a great theatre introduction for young children. Created for ages 2-7, it approaches a subject we all experience at one time or another – feeling left out or different. Through the vibrant and bubbly characters, the audience experiences a new world and discovers with the characters that being different isn’t bad. In fact, it can be exciting! With physical action and comedy, the three characters, at first cautious of the Odd One, learn that embracing new ways of doing things can be exciting and lead to unexpected creations.

This non-verbal live performance is delightfully entertaining and playful. The intriguing nature of the characters and the mischievous Odd One are a joy to watch and the unfolding story will have your tamariki laughing and engaging with the characters and their antics.

It is with great pleasure that our organization wants to officially announce the launching of the Percuaction Rhythm Festival 2018 in Auckland New Zealand, a cultural, educational and artistic gathering open to the general public, which will develop multiple activities around one of life's most important engines and elements: Rhythm!

It is within Percuaction's mission statement, the necessity to promote artistic environments that foster human potential through creative practices as well as possibilities for people to interact in diverse rhythmic realms that allow evolution.
Therefore, and based on the results obtained with our pedagogical vision and contents in recent years, our intention is to widen our reach by offering a cultural event that promotes diversity while adding value that benefits our society through education and art.

Moreover, in addition to promote such spaces to deepen into the study and practice of rhythm, our goal is to incentivize human consciousness, that allows social transformation and collective evolution.

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.

Fa’afetai lava,
Black Grace
