Light fan­tas­tic on show at Te Manawa

Manawatu Guardian - - NEWS -

On the evening of July 7, Te Manawa will come alive with the sights and sounds of Welling­ton group Kuki Koori, as they per­form their show In The House.

Kuki Koori com­bines mu­sic by Iain Gor­don — key­boardist from Fat Freddy’s drop — with live an­i­ma­tion by dig­i­tal artist Mick Finn. For In The House, the pair is joined by Will Rick­etts, per­cus­sion­ist for The Phoenix Foun­da­tion.

The end re­sult is an au­dio­vi­sual spec­tac­u­lar to de­light all ages. Finn cre­ates his an­i­ma­tions in real time, synch­ing them with the mu­sic and pro­ject­ing them up for all to see. The an­i­ma­tions are unique to each show, too — the vi­su­als at this con­cert will never have been seen be­fore.

In The House will cel­e­brate the his­tory of the Manawatu¯ , with uniquely lo­cal im­agery as well as an­i­mated items from the Te Manawa col­lec­tion that have not yet been dis­played. To take ad­van­tage of the mu­seum’s dif­fer­ent per­spec­tives on our re­gion, the show will not be a static per­for­mance, but will in­stead move through­out the mu­seum and il­lu­mi­nate its spa­ces in new ways.

The show will run from 7pm to 9pm on the evening of 7 July. Tick­ets are $20 for adults and $10 for chil­dren un­der 18. Con­ces­sions are avail­able for groups: $50 for a family of two adults and two chil­dren, and $150 for a group of 10 adults.

Chil­dren un­der 14 must be su­per­vised by an adult. Book now by call­ing 0800 4 A MU­SEUM, or by vis­it­ing the Te Manawa front desk.

KUKI Koori bring their show to Manawatu¯ for the first time on July 7
