Elemental is an aerial silks and contemporary dance spectacular
to be performed in a stunning outdoor setting: over, around, and in
Dunedin's St Clair Hot Salt Water Pool.
Through Maori creation stories of Raki and Papa, and Raki's
jealous rival Takaroa, the show will explore elements of earth,
air, fire, and water. Featuring aerial silks artists, dancers,
singers, and more, Elemental promises to be a unique performance
event not to be missed! It will feature in the Dunedin Fringe
Performers involved in Elemental include the astoundingly
talented aerialists of Brophy's Aerials, contemporary dancers led
by award-winning choreographer Emma Holloway, the glamorous
Aquagold Synchronised Swimmers, plus fire performers, drumming
group The Unfortunate Repercussions, and vocal soloist Ana
The creative team behind Elemental has previously collaborated
on a number of spectacular, innovative, site-specific shows,
including Cirque des Voleurs (Sammy's), Metamorphosis (Athenaeum
Underground), and Circus Alice (Gasworks Museum).
But Elemental is our most ambitious show to date, and we need
your help to make it happen! The St Clair Pool has never been used
as a show venue before, let alone hosting such a diverse and
dazzling range of performers. Presenting an original show in a new
non-theatre venue raises all sorts of interesting technical,
logistical and budgetary challenges, All donations, small or large,
will help us make this exciting vision a reality.
