Auckland Live and Spare Parts Puppet Theatre present
Auckland Live Kids
It is with regret that Auckland Live’s April School Holiday activation, the AOTEA SQUARE ARCADE along with STRING SYMPHONY is now being postponed until further notice. This decision has been made due to the Covid-19 outbreak and the need to eliminate the risk of spread of the virus within Aotearoa. We are sad to have to make this decision, but look forward to rescheduling this Aotea Square outdoor activation at a future date which will be confirmed in the coming months.
Bring a two-storey high puppet to life!
A giant illuminated puppet is waiting to come to life, with your help. Work together with twelve fellow puppeteers to animate this enchanting spectacle, taking turns to pull the strings and enliven the towering handwoven creature.
What are you waiting for? Make your way to Aotea Square for a free school holiday experience you'll never forget, and don't miss all the other great offerings along the way, including the Aotea Square Arcade.
“As dusk fell, the giant puppet started to twinkle and the energy on the festival site was palpable...”
- Jennifer Nebel, Principal Arts Officer, City of Joondalup (Joondalup Festival)
“The work has the ability to communicate to diverse audiences through universal languages of movement, light, and the human form.”
-Caitlind Brown and Wayne Garrett, Installation Artists (Incandescentcloud.com)
