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.

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.

Salmonella Dub, legends of the NZ music scene are celebrating their 25th anniversary with three very special shows this summer, featuring the return of Tiki Taane.

These shows mark 25 years for the multiple platinum selling and award winning Salmonella Dub, and will be especially memorable with the featured return of Tiki Taane who worked with the band from 1996 until 2006.

Pioneers of Aotearoa’s Dub n’ Bass scene, Salmonella Dub have always pushed musical boundaries, taking a reggae foundation and fusing it with multiple genres to create a sound entirely their own.

Salmonella Dub’s impressive and very important place in New Zealand music history is undeniable - seven studio albums, three remix albums, a live album with the NZSO, four EP’s, and over 161 songs collectively achieving 10 x platinum across a catalogue that has sold over 600k worldwide, 270 + festival appearances, five Tui awards, and twelve Bnets awards all proving testament to this band's iconic status.

Founding member Andrew Penman says “We are preparing an iconic, audio-visual, bass heavy, back catalogue mash up with a super-abundantly full treasure chest of guests”.

Tiki Taane says of his welcome return “To be able to help my old band mates celebrate 25 years of Salmonella Dub is a glorious prospect and probably a once in a lifetime occurrence – no one will want to miss this”.

From their very first live appearance in 1993, to the forthcoming 25th anniversary tour, passion, creativity, energy, driving bass beats and pure joy are the signature hallmarks of one of New Zealand’s most successful bands.

Don’t miss out on what promises to be a truly phenomenal live eight-piece band executed dance floor experience.
