Auckland Arts Festival


 

BLESS THE CHILD

AWARD-WINNING URBAN THRILLER PREMIERE SEASON

Four years ago Hone Kouka’s mother laid down a challenge to her playwright son: “She said to me, 'We're hurting our babies, you gotta do something about this'.”
Already an award-winning production, with Hone picking up the 2015 Adam NZ Play Award, and featuring an all-star New Zealand cast, Bless The Child is an edge-of-seat urban thriller and unflinching social commentary.
 
 
 

WHĀNUI 2018

FIVE EVENTS WEAVE STORIES ACROSS GENERATIONS

Five projects feature in the 2018 Whānui programme with activities taking place with communities across Auckland themed around inter-generational collaboration.
Projects include a sculpture installation, an outdoor mural preserving the stories of yesterday, documentary theatre exploring the process of ageing through the eyes of young people, a performance highlighting traditional Sāmoan oratory customs and contemporary hip hop lyricism, and four days of “artivism” in response to the impact of housing redevelopment in Tāmaki.
 
 
 


EXPLOSIVE FAMILY FUN

New Zealand's favourite science superhero Nanogirl (played by real life nanotechnologist Dr Michelle Dickinson) and her trusty lab assistant Boris are back for ONE SHOW ONLY: Nanogirl vs The Elements on Sat 3 March.
Hold onto your seats and get ready for an explosive adventure of huge adrenaline filled experiments demonstrating the power of science like you've never seen before! Nanogirl vs The Elements is presented by thinkScience and sponsored by The University of Auckland.
 
 


A NEW SCORE FOR GISELLE

Not just a superb dance work, Akram Khan’s Giselle, features an “ominous, gothic” score (The Observer) using hybrid electronics and a full orchestra.
Composer Vincenzo Lamagna talks about adapting Adolphe Adam’s original score for this new production. Performed live in Auckland by the Auckland Philharmonia Orchestra under English National Ballet Music Director Gavin Sutherland. Coming direct to Auckland Arts Festival from London, this is a once-in-a lifetime chance to see this monumental production.

BEHIND THE SCENES: Rehearsals start for Tea

Weaving a tale of legacies, prophecies and love, the play has its world premiere season at Q Theatre 9-18 March.
