Black Grace (Highly Acclaimed Dance Company from New Zealand)

Hi Culture Connoisseurs!

I love Pacific Island style dancing and this group combines Pacific Islander style dance with modern dance.  Ticket prices range from $41-$45 for adults ($20 for youth ages 5-17).  Tickets are nearly sold out and available seats at this point include main floor sides and balcony center and sides.  To purchase tickets, please click here http://www.meany.org/tickets/?perf=13QD03.

Here is the description from the Meany Hall website:

"New Zealand’s leading contemporary dance company, Black Grace has electrified audiences around the globe. Led by celebrated choreographer Neil Ieremia, the company has earned phenomenal critical and audience acclaim for its unique fusion of Pacific Islander and contemporary dance. Extraordinary and dynamic in form, their work is eloquent and elemental, athletic and spiritual. “Black Grace performs exciting, high-octane dance that is bruising and punishing in its physicality – an explosive combination of Samoan ritual, martial arts and daredevil risk-taking,” raves Toronto’s Globe and Mail. The performance includes a retrospective of their shorter works spanning the last 17 years and the Seattle premiere of a new piece, Vaka."

Here is a link to their website http://www.blackgrace.co.nz/about/ and YouTube channel http://www.youtube.com/user/blackgracedanceco.

Prior to the performance, join me for appetizers and drinks frpm 7-7:45 in the lower lobby (downstairs). Menu options include wine, beer, cocktails, salads, baguettes, and a cheese sampler. Here are links to the menu options:

    Hi Everyone! Join me for drinks and a bite to eat from 7-7:45 in the lower lobby of Meany Hall (downstairs) and during intermission. I will have a Meetup sign. If you would like to have a drink during intermission, I suggest pre-ordering to avoid the lines. Here is one reviewer's take on the performance http://seattletimes.com/html/thearts/2020411241_blackgracereviewxml.html

    Thanks so much for organizing, Lorrie ! I bought a ticket (balcony left, BB53) a couple of weeks ago - it would be great to meet before the show.

      Kathleen, you're welcome! The bar at Meany Hall opens 1 hour before the show and offers wine, beer, charcuterie, cheese sampler, and baguettes. Let's meet there.

    Hi Lorrie
    Is the theatre set up like an auditorium.... 2 sides and middle all facing the stage? I don't want to pay for a ticket that puts me in a location where I can't see or I'm viewing the performance from a
    profile.

      Hi Muezet, the seat locations I mentioned are the only available seats remaining. Our best bet at this point is probably the balcony. Click here to access a seating chart http://www.meany.org/...­.

    Hi All! We don't have enough people to qualify for a group ticket purchase discount but I'm still happy to purchase tickets for the group. If you are interested, please let me know asap! The cost will be $45 per person (plus taxes & fees) and options are limited to the main floor sides and the balcony. Please note that Meany Hall has an "all sales are final" policy so if you are unable to attend, you will still be responsible for the cost of your ticket. In such event, I will try to find a buyer for your ticket. You will have the option of reimbursing me via PayPal or in cash at the event. Thanks! Lorrie
