Street Theatre Saturday
Posted at 6:00am Thursday 15 Apr, 2021 | By Joanna Perry email@example.com
Music, theatre, dance will take over the streets of Wānaka on Saturday for the Festival of Colour arts festival's Street Theatre Day.
Tell your stories of lockdown to Katja at Lockdown Laundry, have a customised love letter written, watch crazy performers from Rollicking Entertainment, leave your doubts behind with the Insecurity Guards, see Upper Hutt dancers The 8th Count perform, listen to ACE Brass and boogie along with United Dance Crew.
The jam-packed day of free entertainment begins from 9.30am and will continue through the day and into the night.
Cross the Line, featuring local dancers and skaters, will be performed at the Skate Park at 10am and 11am, and there will be a part treasure hunt, part mystery cellphone adventure around town with specially-developed app Big Data from 10.30am.
After sunset, head down to the Dinosaur Park for the second performance of mesmerising mid-air duet The Air Between Us with Chloe Loftus and Rodney Bell at 7:30pm.
Street Theatre Day is part of the Festival of Colour's biggest programme of community events presented in the festival's history and also includes three exhibitions at the Lake Wanaka Centre - Te Taki o te Ua / The Sound of Rain, Through the Eye of the Lens and Ministry for the Environment's Our Climate Future - as well a special project with acclaimed artist Michel Tuffery, Windows over Wānaka, which has transformed the shopfronts of Helwick Street.
