Te Papa, 55 Cable St, Wellington

The 1960s and 1970s were decades of social change and experimentation, and for photography they marked the beginnings of art photography in New Zealand.
The New Photography – Life in the 60s and 70s, curated by Athol McCredie features the work of eight photographers who led the way at this time of social change.

The exhibition also includes audio interviews with the photographers and will be accompanied by a playlist of rock and jazz music of the period.

New Zealand Portrait Gallery, Shed 11, Wellington Waterfront, Wellington

Peter James Quinn has been capturing images of New Zealanders at work over the length of the country for the past thirty years. Over this time, major shifts in what work looks like in New Zealand can be seen.

Work is a part of our collective and individual identities. We relate to others through the jobs they and we do. Work, of all kinds, consumes a major part of our daily lives.

Through our labours, together we are shaping New Zealand. Through the work of Peter James Quinn, we see the undulating shape of our nation taking form.

The Streets

23 Jul 2019 (Tue)

Michael Fowler Centre, 111 Wakefield Street, Wellington

The Streets or Mike Skinner to his mum, burst onto the UK music scene in 2002. Described as the voice of his generation, the ground-breaking mix of beats and rhymes of Original Pirate Material, led to a Mercury Music Prize Nomination, and both critical and commercial acclaim.
That was just the beginning of the rollercoaster that would run through the modern-day opus of A Grand Don't Come For Free, which spawned the UK No.1 Dry Your Eyes, as well as a host of Top 10 singles and went multi-platinum around the world.

Live Rust Concert Tour

6 Aug 2019 (Tue)

The Opera House, 111 - 113 Manners Street, Wellington

To celebrate the 40th anniversary of Neil Young’s 1979 Live Rust album that captured the best of his Rust Never Sleeps Tour, a super group of New Zealand artists will come together to perform live in concert, the album in its entirety, track-by-track.
From Comes a Time, After the Gold Rush and The Needle and the Damage Done to the thunderous exhilaration of Like A Hurricane, Cinnamon Girl and Cortez the Killer, this is the best of Neil Young at the peak of his powers being performed by some of our most passionate and accomplished artists and musicians.

Jon Toogood and Liam Finn join Samuel Flynn Scott and Chris O'Connor from The Phoenix Foundation, the prodigious SJD and award-winning artists Reb Fountain and Delaney Davidson, together with The Bads’ Dianne Swann and Brett Adams for three amazing concerts in Wellington, Christchurch and Auckland this August.

Bridging solo acoustic jewels and explosive electrical storm, Live Rust sold platinum in the US but only in New Zealand did it reach #1, spending a staggering 50 weeks in the charts.

New Zealand’s finest will recreate that mother lode of Live Rust hits track by track - with an opening set of classics spanning Buffalo Springfield to Crazy Horse.

Bold Moves

16 Aug 2019 (Fri) - 18 Aug 2019 (Sun)

The Opera House, 111 - 113 Manners Street, Wellington

The stage will be flooded with colour and light.
George Balanchine’s Serenade is one of the few ballets that can truly be held iconic. Conceived in 1934, it is American ballet’s founding document, the foundation on which all later works must stand and against which they will be judged.

28 dancers are transported by Tchaikovsky’s Serenade for Strings, moving through time and space in perfect patterns, architectural yet organic, supremely structured yet somehow free.

Serenade has an inner light, a tranquillity and a deeply felt emotion that has spoken to generations of dancers and audiences. More than 40 years after it was first staged by the company, the Royal New Zealand Ballet is privileged to bring Serenade back to our theatres.

Serenade is all moonlight; William Forsythe’s Artifact II is a blast of neon and strobe.
