Opens this week at the ASB Waterfront Theatre!


So kitsch it’s cool – a ’90s homage to all the dance movies ever made.

“True friendship is about being there for each other, no matter what.”

It’s 1990 in Aotearoa. Gloss is on the TV, David Hasselhoff is on the cover of Woman’s Day and entries are open for the New Zealand Aerobics Championships (sponsored by Miami Wine Cooler and Timotei shampoo, of course). The first prize of $10,000 is on the line and spots are quickly filling up.

Small-town girl Natalie Te Rehua is trying to make it in the big smoke, teaching aerobics while she dreams of dancing. With a bad-ass attitude, pūkana-on-point and dance-blood pulsing in her veins, she reluctantly teams up with Haka queen Tāwhai Pātai for the mixed doubles. Once they get in sync they decide to ditch the whole ’tits and teeth in rhythm’ routine and explode onto the dance floor with something no one has ever seen before. Haka-fusion!

There’s just one raru. Natalie has a secret that only her brother Sonny knows which could stop her from dancing and destroy her dreams. But how can she truly live if she can’t dance?

Auckland Theatre Company and Te Pou Theatre are absolutely pumped to present the world premiere of Hyperspace by Albert Belz. Winner of the 2023 Adam NZ Play Award, Hyperspace is a sequel to Albert Belz’s much-loved Astroman, presented in 2019 and directed by Tainui Tukiwaho.

“We’re not just dancing for ourselves, we’re dancing for everyone who’s ever been told they can’t.”

A collaboration between Auckland Theatre Company and Te Pou Theatre.

By arrangement with Playmarket.
