MIXIT gears up for their annual performance, taking place on the 25th and 26th of January; Access sees the young performers create their own stories, moves, characters and responses, with its central theme about “access”.

What does it mean to have, or be denied, access to information, knowledge, opportunities and support? What do a diverse team of young people from a range of backgrounds and experiences have to say about this? What do they feel they have ease of access to and what do they not? What is it they wish to access to and what changes could that bring?

Every summer Mixit invites a multi-cultural team of people aged between 14 – 22 years to devise a site-specific performance event. Taking just 6 days to build the show from scratch the end result integrates dance, drama, music and found sound to explore, create and roam the chosen site

A creative team of leading artists, including Mixit Director Wendy Preston alongside Chris Graham and Tahi Mapp-Borren, will guide the Access project. They’ll also mentor four emerging artists, recently graduated from performing arts training, as creative interns.

The participants come from across Auckland and together form an International cast of young people from refugee, migrant and local backgrounds. Mixit is renowned for producing inspirational and vibrant performance events that reflect the dynamic multi-cultural mix of Auckland communities in 2014.

Access will mount 3 performance events at Corbans Estate Arts Centre in Henderson, West Auckland. Audiences can anticipate moving around this heritage site guided by an extraordinary range of eclectic characters. Expect to access the unexpected…

Mixit is an inspirational multicultural youth project that uses the arts as a platform for empowerment, connection and for young people with refugee backgrounds to ‘mix it’ with migrant and local youth.
