Come and celebrate the opening of the 2015 Christchurch Arts Festival as Worcester Boulevard is transformed into a visual feast of fire, warmth and light with two outdoor performance pieces and the revealing of Ngai Tahu artist Priscilla Cowie’s sculpture Rama Tuna.

Created and directed by Alex Rigg (Ocean All Over, Scotland) and Adam Hayward (The Body Festival), Eel Mother uses elaborate costumes, live music and physical theatre.

And don’t be surprised to see Eel Mother in unexpected pop-up performances in various locations around the city in the week leading up the opening event as it makes its progress towards the central city.
