The Performance Arcade 2017 has launched! Sam Trubridge, Founder and Artistic Director of the Arcade, talks about this unique event and describes a little of what to expect in March 2017. Hope to see you there! Like us on Facebook! Follow us on Instagram! Follow us on Twitter!

The Performance Arcade brings together visual arts and performance in a specially curated ‘exhibition-event’ of live art practices on Wellington Waterfront. An arrangement of shipping containers and scaffold structures provides a temporary architecture for this unique project, housing a bar space, a programme of live music and events, and new performance installations by NZ and International artists. Open 13 hours a day, this event is free to the Wellington public.

The Performance Arcade is an annual Live Art mini-festival and programme of free events located on Wellington Waterfront. Since its inaugural presentation in 2011, The Performance Arcade has become a highly anticipated event with an ever-increasing international profile. In 2014 the Arcade was presented as part of the prestigious New Zealand Festival.


Using a series of architecturally arranged shipping containers, The Performance Arcade creates a series of spaces for installation, performance art, sonic art, interactive media, forums and live music. Opening onto the bustling life of the Wellington Waterfront, these sites of encounter engage the public in contemporary art and performance practices outside the familiar constraints of gallery or theatre spaces. This free event is at once playful and engaging. It is a site of discovery and interaction, offering the public a unique opportunity to immerse themselves in relevant and new Live Art experiences.


The event is open for thirteen hours each day and is curated to offer activities that range in scale from small, personal artistic encounters to live music and AV installation performed under the night skies. The 2014 event involved 39 artists, 42 musicians and 24 crew. In 2014 close to 10,000 people experienced the Arcade over five days.
