POP MARBLES & POP RIDERS
23 March – 8 April, Māngere Bridge Village: 8:30am - 6:30pm
Play with friends, family, workmates or strangers to build a giant, interactive marble run with Pop Marbles. Create a composition of native New Zealand bird recordings as the marbles journey through the maze. Or you might be sending the marbles on their way with SJD’s electronic soundscape.
Pop Marbles was created by Alt Group, with two original soundscapes. The first was created with sounds composed by renowned New Zealand musician SJD in 2016. And in 2017 an original native bird soundscape was composed by Tim Prebble and developed in collaboration with Auckland Zoo.
6 April: 3 - 5pm, Tōia to Ōtāhuhu Town Centre
8 April: 11am – 1pm, Mangere Bridge Village
Watch out for the White Face Crew’s wacky wheels and blinged-out bikes this March. These clever clowns are bringing their unique style of physical comedy to Auckland's cycleways and public spaces, and they want you in their Pop Riders crew.
White Face Crew is a performance group that capture hearts and imaginations. Drawing from the performance backgrounds of core members Justin Haiu, Tama Jarman and Jarod Rawiri, the White Face Crew create original works of physical theatre, clowning and improv.
