Julian Cook has organised this. He is legend. His events always rock HARD. SO ATTEND.
Proud will be taking over the newly renovated, historical Victoria Park Market complex – with indoor and outdoor bars, decks galore and internal staircases between four amazing dance floors – including the fabulous La Zeppa and Libertine bars, plus a never-before-seen industrial space. The open-air Victoria Park Market Courtyard will host Sydney’s DJ Kitty Glitter, supported by DJ Steven Oates – plus three full stage shows starring New Zealand’s Got Talent semi-finalist Chris Olwage, burlesque showgirls Miss Phlossy Roxx and Miss Leda Petit, and prima drag diva Tess Tickle with the Vogue Dance Crew. Floating high above the courtyard, La Zeppa – a New York loft style venue with a massive deck – will play host to the New York house sounds of DJs Bevan Keys, James Leuii and Mauri. Just behind the courtyard lies the super cool Libertine, where DJs MayaVanya, Samuel Holloway and Sarah Larnach will be spinning an eclectic mix of indie and alternative sounds. And hidden somewhere in-between all this glamour, lurks a dark, industrial space where DJs Greg Churchill, Luke James and Raj will be hitting it hard, fast and heavy! Do not miss out! This is Victoria Park Market like you have never seen it before – and queer partying on a lavish scale that Auckland hasn’t experienced in years!
Tomorrow two New Zealanders will die for their crimes. Minnie Dean, Winton’s infamous baby farmer and Victor Spencer, World War I deserter, await execution. “Well-written… confidently acted… a thought provoking 50 minutes” (The Scotsman). “Spectacular performances” (Three Weeks).
This is a fascinating idea. I have always thought a great film could be made from the Minnie Dean story. And I am always pleased, no delighted to see NZ stories on stage or screen.
