Schwarzkopf Professional Awards Gala
Centre, 6 May 2006
Michael Hurst and
Jennifer Ward-Lealand hosted the Schwarzkopf Professional
Awards Gala at Aotea Centre on 6 May 2006. The
rest of the creative team were long-time colleagues: Choreography
by Shona McCullogh, costumes by Elizabeth Whiting,
and music by John Gibson.
For the opening
performance piece, Michael and Jennifer
entered from opposite sides of the stage followed
by eight dancers in white. Jennifer was wearing
the frock Sophia Hawthorne had worn as the
Duchess of Malfi, and Michael was wearing the suit
Benjamin Farry wore as her brother Ferdinand (click
here for pics from that production).
But something bizarre
was happening: As the event progressed, Michael
kept getting taller, finally towering over everyone! Check
out the pics below.
