Chocolate (Wellington, New Zealand)


1 Apr 2019 - 1 Mar 2021

Short Synopsis

In this feast for all five senses, New Zealand’s Java Dance spoon-feeds its audience in the best possible way.

Java turns its attention to everyone’s favourite treat. First, the smell hits you as you enter the theatre – an aroma of chocolate that sets the mouth salivating. Then the sight of five performers; dancers and musicians ready to take the audience into a world of passion, frustration, desire and love. Ears prick up at the sound of live violin, cello and charango, audience members touch gold foil as they unwrap a chocolate gift in anticipation And, of course there’s a chance to taste this delicious gift from nature; whether it’s handed to you wrapped in paper, or poured into your mouth from a spoon.

Prepare for some gloriously messy action in celebration of the great cacao and its collision with sugar, to create the world’s most popular confection. Rave reviews in Edinburgh 2019. 5 stars (The Mumble, The Wee Review), 4 stars (The Fountain)
