Lovers Walk show back from UK/Europe – touring NZ summer 2012, making a stop at Wellington for the NZ Fringe Festival

After representingNew Zealandat the biggest arts festival in the world – Edinburgh Fringe Festival 2011, and a short tour ofUKandEurope, Siri and Gus are bringing their “Lovers Walk” home. They are touring the show acrossNorth Islandwith a diverse line up of supporting acts.

“Performing atEdinburghwas very exciting, but most interesting for us was sharing our “walk” with audiences in non-English speaking environments” – says Gus. “Peoples heartfelt response made us understand our own work on a completely new level, and we are delighted to be back home to share that feeling”.

Lovers Walk is a short (yet infinite) odyssey written, created and choreographed by dancer Siri Embla and poet Gus Simonovic,with video material by visual artist Peter Brierley-Millman and music by Jo Blankenburg (piano), Gareth Priceless (guitar), Dubtext (electronica) and Kotaro Nishishita (classical guitar).

Lovers Walk is uplifting true love story told through fusion of music, poetry, video, theatre and dance. A majestic theatrical feast for your soul and all six senses. Two dynamic video projections, live dance and poetry.

Siri says: “Aroha, acquaintance, romance, affection, devotion, liaison – the show is about love in all its forms. Lovers Walk will reshape shapes and brighten colours in your love-kaleidoscope while telling you a story that you know so well, as it was your own.”
