From the makers of Mia Blonde: the Ice Dagger, Top Town and Butch Flaccidy and the Fundance Kidz, comes a hilarious new comedy dance show about a plucky journo and a bowl-cut-loving cult nestled somewhere in a non-specific corner of the Coromandel. 

Weird rituals? You bet. 
Hypnotic dancing? Of course. 
A wonderfully silly hour of laughs? Always. 

Investigative journalist, Davina Cobb, is riding the wave of popularity as her online newsletter “The Cobb Web” takes the internet by storm. She’s hungry for the next big exposé and has set her sights on the highly secretive religious community known as “The Children”. Posing as a lost vagrant, disillusioned with the demands of society, Davina infiltrates the community and aligns herself with the charismatic leader and self-appointed guru, Giving Lover. Will Davina have the scoop of the century? Will the cult-members cotton onto her true identity? Or will Davina become inveigled into a mind-blowing conspiracy that will redefine life as we know it?

The Children of Sacred Valley marks the return of Auckland’s favourite comedy dance company, Dynamotion. Tom Sainsbury and Lara Fischel-Chisholm are getting the gang back together, bringing you some of Aotearoa’s finest dance comedians in an hour of pure joy, thumping tunes, outrageous characters and wonderfully inventive choreography. Don’t miss this critically acclaimed company do what it does best. 

Featuring: Kate Simmonds, Arlo Gibson, Liv Tennet, Shaan Kesna, Cat Fawcett-Cornes, Karamia Muller, Harry NcNaughton, Jennie Robertson, Kermath and Sunny Liew.

    H.R. The Musical

    A performance revue like you'll never get in an office tower! This cheeky number takes on the ridiculous and objectionable in the modern workplace in the form of the blues, rap, latin plainchant and more to see what meets expectations and what needs improvement.

    Frenchy - Embrace The Chaos

    Life is chaos. Comedy is chaos. At least the way Frenchy does it…

    Les and Fleur are a middle-aged couple at the end of their tether. Francis and Connie are newly-weds terrified of getting it on. They’ve double booked a romantic getaway at a kiwi bach in the middle of nowhere, but we’re not sure which is raging harder - the storm outside, or the hormones inside!
