In Flagrante is 11 short pieces set to the music of quirky Austrian cabaret group Waldeck's ‘Ballroom Stories'. The dancers draw you deeper into their dark world as each piece develops.
The creator of this sultry show isMaryJane O'Reilly, New Zealand's legendary contemporary dance exponent and co founder of the ‘before it's time' Limbs Dance Company, whose exuberant signature style was their highly developed sense of satire, superb technical execution and genius for slapstick physical theatre.
This is a very sexy romp through some deliciously dark territory. If you're a contemporary dance fan you'll adore the captivating choreography and precise physical and cerebral execution. Be prepared to be surprised - if not a little shocked. If you're not a dance fan you'll love the gorgeous sculpted dancers, the humour, music and daring minimal costumes. A fresh look at burlesque, in all is slick, naked darkness and glory.
“I wanted to challenge the orthodoxies of burlesque female sexuality; that women are capable of being bad, not just coquettish avatars,” says MaryJane
The result is a truly unique burlesque experience.
In Flagrante is set to be a very popular show during The REAL New Zealand Festival so book early.

In Flagrante »
8 - 26 AUGUST 2013
From the toxic utopia of Our Day Will Come, to a North Korean traffic girl- an exploration of women in uniform as signallers and authority figures, to horses and their wild equestrian spirit, In Flagrante is a show with a vicious little edge. Fusing cabaret and contemporary dance, fetish and theatre, pop iconology and burlesque, and an all out rebellion against female sexual stereotypes, In Flagrante is unique, provocative, sexy ... and wickedly funny!
