January - March 2018
The Performance Arcade team have landed at Toi Pōneke Arts Centre. As part of our support and opportunities programme, Toi Pōneke is excited to sponsor office space for this iconic Wellington festival. The team will be working in Project Room 29 from now until 9 March 2018.
The Performance Arcade is an acclaimed live art event that attracts 50,000 people every year to Wellington Waterfront since 2011. Audiences come for an exciting and diverse program of art, live music, and performance, installed within a special architectural arrangement of shipping containers that are stacked and arranged together to create an innovative new space for performance and arts presentation.
This miniature festival offers new encounters between artists and public, creating a vibrant hub that activates the city and exposes communities to new ideas and cultural perspectives. The free admission and waterfront location makes it accessible to a broad community, developing empowered audiences and participants in the creative and cultural life of the city.
The production team are: Sam Trubridge (Director), Sascha Perfect (Producer), Johann Nortje (Associate Director), Yalda Armian (Business Manager), Alex Sawicka-Ritchie (Architectural Design), Keely McCann (Production Manager), Thomas Friggens (Music Curator), Amelia Taverner (Social Media Manager and Audience Development), Marcus McShane (Lighting Design), Francisco Lora (Graphic Design), Joshua Tucker (Technical Manager), and Harriet Campbell (Production Assistant) .
