Auckland Fringe

Malia Johnston’s celebrated company Rifleman Productions (body / fight / time, Dark Tourists) brings some Wellington flavour to the Q Loft with their double bill of boutique dance works – the premiere of Amanimal and Festival favourite Terrain. Using some of the country’s best contemporary dancers and collaborators (Ross McCormack, Paul Young, Eden Mulholland, John Verryt, Anita Hunziker and Luke Hanna) the two works complement each other to make for a complete evening of engaging and immersive dance theatre.

Amanimal (Premiere)
Amanimal is the third major collaboration between Malia and theatre director Emma Willis and continues their exploration into the intertwining of the theatre and dance vocabularies within a movement milieu. Two Little Dickie Birds looks at the idea of environment, and how “beings” create and reflect their surroundings. Using animal imagery, Ross and Paul create a rich landscape, infused with comedy and absurdity as well as some strong lyrical imagery from Eden.

An exploration of landscape, scale and place, Terrain is a performance in which the miniature and the giant collide in a very human exploration of precariousness and the inevitability of change. Presented on an innovative installation consisting of a tiny kitset plywood stage, artificial turf, miniature props and vintage music played on a retro hi-fi, Terrain is at once profound while appealing to the model railway junkie in us all, a piece that has something for everyone. It playfully subverts traditional ideas about what dance can be, combining it with physical theatre, visual imagery and high energy partnering, as it if were just as much an art exhibition in motion.
