Light fantastic on show at Te Manawa
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
