Front row: Frances Nisbet, Litsa Orevich, Rachel Pomare and Rebekah Chambers-Thatcher. The award-winning play Niu Sila was recently put on by senior performing arts stu- dents at Bay of Islands Col- lege in Kawakawa. Directed by drama teacher Hannah Gould, the production featured talented and hard- working Northland kids. The show was full of move- ment and humour, even in its darkest moments where the students dealt with some serious issues from domestic violence to racial disharmony. Niu Sila featured a set crafted by art teacher Peter Slack and music from Faybian Rewha, Pita Puru, Kawiti Toeke and Marysa Rihari. The play was received well by members of the com- munity, the Bay of Islands Rotary Club and students of the school. Local artists get chance to go mad Reflections: Lake Manuwai painted by Patricia McDonald will be one of the pieces of art projected on to the stage. Audiences at The Turner Centre on October 1 are in for a rare treat. Following the success of its production of Coppelia last December, the Northern Dance Academy is collaborating with local artists and musicians to present Northland Goes Mad, an extravaganza of music, art and dance. This will feature the academy's many award- winning dancers per- forming 25 short classi- cal and contemporary dances to pop, jazz and classical music, much of it played and sung, and some of it composed, by local musicians. The music will include the legendary Russ Gar- cia's thrilling compo- sition for the soundtrack of the film Time Machine while Eckhard Kyncl has composed the score for a ballet set partly in heaven, and our own renaissance man -- painter, composer and pianist Mike Nettmann -- will play his haunting song Highways. The backdrop for each dance will be a work by a local artist projected onto the wall behind the dancers and chosen care- fully by Liz Russell, the Director of the Northern Dance Academy, to illus- trate and complement the dances and the music. The combination of local music, art and dance should be really powerful,'' Liz says. The 25 works of art we'll be using are all stunning in their own right, but will be brought to life even more by the music and dance. In turn, they'll similarly reinforce the power of the performances.'' Devising the show has also stimulated local creativity. One artist has painted a picture especi- ally for it. And Liz was inspired by seeing another painting, Noc- turne by Wendy Gal- braith, to create the dance of that name, while Chris Booth's scul- pture by the Domain, and memories of the drought two years ago led Liz to create the dance H2O. Nature gen- erally has been the cen- tral inspiration behind the show which begins with the folk rhythms of the Corrs accompanying the dancers with Julia Reinhardt's beautiful photograph Sunset Over the Dead Sea projected behind them. Northland Goes Mad promises to be a real feast for the senses and a treat for all the family. The dance society gratefully acknowledges the support of the Pel- orus Trust and Pub Charity whose grants helped to make the pro- duction possible. Tickets are available from Poppies Book Store, Puttsgreen Florist or online at northern.dance @xtra.co.nz.
