creek boys

Creek Boys has taken nearly twenty years to get here.  It is about growing up in a place called Cannons Creek in Porirua, twenty minutes north of Wellington and never far from my thoughts.  It’s the place where I had my first kiss, my first fight and made my first dance about Jesus.

Inspired by countless memories of fumbling, fear, laughter and wrestling, Creek Boys is an offering to an old English Teacher who refused to let me be anything other than a poor boy from Cannons Creek.  It is also for M.” – Neil Ieremia


The choreography incorporates break-dancing, wrestling, a Good the Bad and the Ugly gunfight, and more, and shows off the strength, athleticism and theatrical talents of the dancers.
