The Tape Artists
An imaginary chart of the night sky laid out at your feet. Using paint and tape, these artists will decorate the pavement in front of Lake Wanaka Centre with a celestial maze of original Antipodean constellations - walk our starry, starry street!

Where: Outside Lake Wanaka Centre
When: Saturday 6 April all day

3 Speed Crunch Box
Incredible acrobatics meet high-risk circus tricks meet side-splitting stupidity. Brought to our streets by the world-touring, crazy stunt people from Australia’s Dislocate circus crew.
Where: Ardmore Street
When: Saturday 6 April 9am

With entertainment drip-fed, downloaded and streamed ‘live’ into our homes, we’ve lost the need to move. A site-specific piece featuring dancers from Dance Wanaka, Live:Stream celebrates classical and contemporary movement and the flow of water and energy that connects us still.

We are encouraged to experience entertainment in real-time, and to acknowledge that younger generations are, in fact, reclaiming physical movement. Supported by Aotea Electric.

Where: Bullock Creek, next to Speight’s Ale House
When: Saturday 6 April 10am & 11am

Tanya Batt
New Zealand’s leading children’s storyteller Tanya Batt has travelled the world sharing her stories (and her impressive collection of costumes). Hear her tell her tall tales live at our library.

Where: Wanaka Library
When: Saturday 6 April 10:30am & 12:30pm

People Library
A range of clever people with expert knowledge of topics ranging from legendary anti-war dissident Archibald Baxter to how to make killer compost. “Borrow” them for 20 minutes and enjoy their insights – book in ahead of time on eventfinda.co.nz, or come by the table in Lake Wanaka Centre to see who’s available.

Where: Lake Wanaka Centre
When: Saturday 6 April every half hour from 11am, finishes at 2pm

The Living Archive of Breath
We are all breathing the same air. This audio-walk invites you to witness air, atmosphere, breath and cosmology in relation. Choreographer Carol Brown, sound artist Russell Scoones and guest dancers take you - and some very special ice cubes - on a journey to the lakeshore as you listen to stories and sounds emerging from a collaboration with atmospheric research scientists at NIWA’s Lauder Station.

Where: Starting from Lake Wanaka Centre
When: Saturday 6 April 11am to 2pm

Red Matters
A day for redheads! Photographer Bianca Duimel is working on her third book, Red Matters, showcasing stunning portraits of redheads, both to celebrate what she calls their beauty and bravery, and to speak out against bullying. She’ll have a studio set up at the Wanaka Arts Centre – book yourself in to be photographed. $10 per session.

Where: Wanaka Arts Centre
When: Saturday 6 April all day

The Insecurity Guards
The Insecurity Guards are here to rid you of your pesky insecurities. Participants write down their insecurities on pieces of paper and deposit them securely and privately in the Insecurity Safe. At the end of the day, the Insecurity Guards set the safe ablaze. Burn, insecurities, burn!

Where: Wanaka Town Centre, Ardmore Street
When: Saturday 6 & Sunday 7 April (Donations)

Jair Ramirez
Colombian-born acrobat Jair Ramirez was described by the BBC as one of the “highlights from Edinburgh Fringe Festival” in 2016, and in 2015 he performed beside the music producer Naughty Boy at the Mobo Awards Ceremony in Leeds in front of 13,000 people.
