The Art of Colour
Headlining the programme of events in December, with more than twenty Unitec dance students and graduates performing The Art of Colour created by choreographer, teacher and former World of Wearable Arts Awards Director, Malia Johnston. Come marvel at this stunning performance in the second week of December when it is performed twice a day on weekdays.

In Real Life with Russell Brown
The latest in a series of “in conversation” events with bFM Breakfast host Esther MacIntyre discussion deals with “Badasses of Auckland”; people who are kicking butt in their chosen field! With guest interviewees, live music, and a Q&A session, IRL is a unique opportunity to get up close and personal with interesting characters of the city - in real life!

Presented by Auckland Live, Auckland University of Technology and University of Auckland.
The interactive installation Beambox will bring “light”-hearted play to Aucklanders of all ages.
This light-themed, multimedia installation gives the opportunity to see, hear and experience the electromagnetic spectrum. Beambox features seven large cubes that move on a grid and interact with each other through laser communication to produce light and sound responses.

Massive Theatre Company
Going strong for 25 years, Massive Theatre Company, a youth focused company that has developed into a strong creative powerhouse for young talent. Roll up and take part in their open “warm up”, with four square, dancing, lip sync and much more. Celebrate summer with the company who toured their show The Brave through the North Island, and over to Hawaii earlier this year.

Three fantastic groups of children called ‘jammers’ will perform song, music and dance. Donations will also be collected to help fundraise for StarJam charity.

95BFM Live Broadcast
We’re ending the year on a high note with the much loved 95bFM radio show Back on the Good Foot broadcasting a live DJ set. Expect crates full of the finest soul, funk, blues, rocksteady, reggae and whatever else feels good at the time from DJs Tina Turntables and Mr Crawley.
