Production Details


What if Fred Astaire and Gene Kelly had a love affair, or Rita Hayworth with Ginger Rogers?

Lost Cow Performances presents a new full-length show, ‘Untitled Queer Commercial Dance Show’ for the 2015 NZ Fringe Festival. Follow our cast of exciting characters in a high energy dance show packed with lyrical, jazz, hip hop and contemporary dance, that questions what it means to be queer.

A team of talented local dancers are adding another voice to the queer world, bringing up issues of gender identity, sexuality and stereotyping through dance. Each character provides a unique story which explores a different facet to being queer in the 21st century.

Ex K’Road go-go dancer and Hutt Valley native Jeremy Haxton presents his first full length show with collaborative efforts from his dancers. After experimenting and presenting contemporary dance works, most recently A measure of freedom for a measure of success for the Short and Sweet Dance Festival, he has decided the best way to present an all Queer work to the public is by pirouetting and high-kicking his way to their hearts.

A graduate of UNITEC Performing Arts School in Auckland, Jeremy returned to Wellington for a simpler, humbler life. He currently exists as a freelance dancer, teacher, choreographer and full-time queer, training to be a qualified ballet teacher through Danceworkz studio. He longs to see the queer population more represented in mainstream culture without the over-the-top stereotypes which come with it. With that, his Untitled Queer Commercial Dance Show was born.

His prior contemporary works have been seen as humorous and light-hearted, whilst being also thought-provoking. He has enjoyed playing with gender roles and the ridiculous expectations associated with them.
