Stalker Theatre / Box of Birds

Taking over Aotea Square in a spectacular free opening week event, an out-of-this-world aerial theatre performance integrated with state-of-the-art interactive technology you can play with.

Lighting up the heart of the Festival for four nights only, Mountain is a truly unique outdoor show. Dancers perform above the ground and against the vertical surfaces around them, responding to a projected digital environment that organically shifts and flows with their movement. Experience these dynamic infrared tracking and mapping technologies for yourself, too, and mingle with the projected play space and giant wall on stage after each performance.

This stunning combination of choreography and interactivity is an innovative, physical, visual spectacle, stirring you to consider our digital dependence and its impact on the biosphere.
