White Face Crew & Betsy Mana Productions

Two colourful characters from the street go head to head in a comic encounter, using their charm and guile to get anything they can. In the pursuit of money, bananas and a shoe, sparks and the shoe will fly! When a man in a suit stumbles upon their turf, will his dark clouds engulf them or will these old enemies find a way to become friends? This is top notch physical theatre and dance from the clever little clowns at The White Face Crew, regulars at Random Acts since 2010. Choreographed by Justin Haiu and directed by Jarod Rawiri, Double Derelicts showcases the unique and spontaneous comedy The White Face Crew is famous for.

“…infuses every movement and expression with truth, wonder and magic. It is simply astounding to behold.” - Theatreview

Concrete Theatre continues our tradition of taking theatre to the people with free performances by a fantastic line up of professional performers in Aotea Square. This year we have three performances a night on Friday and Saturday evenings varying in length between 45 - 60mins running between 5 - 8pm.

Watch jaw-dropping circus feats with Campground Chaos, be amazed by back flips and drum beats from Strike Percussion, be transported with a stunning retelling of Homer’s Odyssey, laugh yourself silly with Double Derelicts and swoon at the harmonious sounds of a Gospel Choir and the National Youth Theatre Company.
