The Basement

New Zealand’s foremost colour-coordinated comedy-dance troupe, Dynamotion, conclude their blood-soaked Terror Trilogy on the road to hell with Terror Highway - a comedy thriller told entirely through dance.

In a town so small where the only thing to do is your cousin, three sassy waitresses are wrongly convicted of mass murder. They bust outta jail to clear their name and avenge the death of local heart-throb, Chris-Lee. Their road to vengeance is lined with sadistic gator farmers, hell-bound hillbillies and a dance-off with The Devil himself.

In their thematic Trilogy Dynamotion mix dance and comedy with blood-soaked stories and slick moves. They are led by co-creators Thomas Sainsbury and Lara Fischel-Chisholm.

Sainsbury is well known as a playwright, most recently for Silo’s Sunday Roast, and writer of the television series Super City. Fischel-Chisholm choreographed and directed the sell-out show Swan Song for The Wet Hot Beauties. Her next role is Movement Director for Auckland Theatre Company’s Jesus Christ Superstar. She says:

"Dynamotion is part theatre, part dance, and all in-your-face, toe-tapping, dark-comedy joy. There's an infectious kind of silliness that emanates from the 'dactors' (dancing actors) that is matched by precision timing and an all-or-nothing attitude. This is silly, sassy, choreographed fun."

Making his Dynamotion dacting debut is hot young comic Chris Parker (Girls Vs Boys, SNORT, Tighty Whiteys). Dacting with Chris and Lara are Dynamotion regulars: Kate Simmonds, Karamia Muller, Roberto Nascimento, Perlina Lau, Elizabeth McMenamin, Kermath Davies, Dan Veint & Marion Prebble.

$15 tickets for group of 10+ on Wednesday 6th August - Promo code clue : What is a Dancing Actor called?
