Photo: ALASTAIR PAULIN MASSIVE is living up to its name, with 550 children performing in the Motueka primary schools' celebration of dance, music and art next week. Originated as a Motueka alternative to Stage Challenge in 2007, the biennial show has grown from six schools then to 11 this year -- all but two of the schools in the Motueka primary cluster. Facilitator and founder Vicki Karetai said the key to the show's success has been that the years 7 and 8 performers make the show their own, with kids taking the lead on conceiving and choreo- graphing their school's seven minute performan- ces. This year's theme is bright'', and Vicki said each school was bringing its own flavour'' to it. Some schools are very dance based, other are visual arts driven. Tasman Bay Christian's has religious content because that's part of the flavour of their school. The show will be two hours of amazing stories and presentations. There's a huge range of inter- pretations of the theme -- bright inventions, bright lights, bright cities, bright family holidays, and one school even has a pupil called Bright.'' At Lower Moutere School, year 8 teacher Ann- Maree Parfitt is proud that all 38 of the senior pupils will be on stage, which suits their theme of how it's not bright to exclude anybody. Nerds in black and white get drawn into groups of brightly coloured dancers, with Ann-Maree say- ing she cast the nerds against type by picking the cool boys''. Vicki said the show was also a good partnership with Motueka High School, which is hosting the show. It gives senior primary pupils the chance to meet each other and get familiar with high school. The MCs this year include two high school students, Harry Townsend and Rebecca Adams, who performed in 2007's first MASSIVE and went on to become accomplished performers. Vicki said the community had really got behind the show, and she was grateful to BNZ staff for doing front of house and the Maori Wardens for helping with security for next week's shows. Performances are at 7pm on Wednesday and Thursday, September 4 and 5. Tickets $5 from school offices or Paper Plus.
