After a sell-out season at the Basement Theatre, Dynamotion brings ‘Blonde’ back to life in the beautiful Q Loft from the 13th – 17th December. Paying homage to the birth of the ‘Bond Film’ franchise in the 1960’s, this is a retro inspired romp in true Dynamotion style – tongue firmly planted in cheek!
The Ice Dagger is a key that unlocks terrifying power of devastating proportions… and it has gone missing. British secret agent, Mia Blonde, is on the case… but who else wants a piece of this beautiful deadly weapon?
The Ice Dagger is a key that unlocks terrifying power of devastating proportions… and it has gone missing. British secret agent, Mia Blonde, is on the case… but who else wants a piece of this beautiful deadly weapon? Olivia Tennet (800 Words, Jiwi’s Machines, Shortland St), is agent 0064 in Dynamotion’s latest epic comedy-dance explosion MIA BLONDE in “ICE DAGGER”! Stereotypes are fulfilled and subverted, ridiculous characters are crafted with humour and heart and as always there are more popping tunes, vintage gems and throbbing anthems than you can shake a ski-pole at.
Joined by a host of delightfully devious villains, double agents and sexy love-interests; Mia travels from Egypt to London to Monte Carlo and the Swiss Alps where she meets her match in Belarusian Ice-skating Femme Fatale, Ima Helavavich (played by actor and choreographer, Lara Liew). Will the Ice Dagger be restored to its rightful place? Will Ima finally win gold at the winter Olympics? Will Mia save the world from total annihilation? Or be double-crossed at the last minute by slippery Scottish maverick, Phil McCrackin? (Played by Roberto Nascimento).
The crew is a star-studded line-up of new and seasoned comedic ‘dacting’ talent. As always writer and director, Thomas Sainsbury (Camping, Super City) and Lara Liew (nee Fischel-Chisholm) are at the head of the twelve-strong Dynamotion family as creators and choreographers. Funny guy, Chris Parker (No More Dancing in the Good Room, Hudson and Halls), is back on board alongside Roberto Nascimento (Terror Island, Terror Planet, Terror Highway) and Shortland St alumni Harry McNaughton and Karamia Muller. McNaughton’s diplomat hubby, Koro Dickinson, makes his stage debut and the woman-of-a-thousand-faces, Kate Simmonds, shines again as secret service weapons expert, ‘Y’.
Described by the Herald as “high-octane tongue-in-cheek ensemble dancing” and slightly more sexily by Theatreview as “infectious pleasure”; Dynamotion shows are a relentless laugh-out-loud hour of silliness that will have you dancing in your seat.
