What's On at the Mayfair Theatre in 2021

APRIL 2021
Arts Festival Dunedin 6th - 9th April

A bicultural multimedia performance intervention that immerses you in the evolutionary consciousness of the Universe.

Wairua draws on traditional Māori and Western contemporary forms of movement and theatre as a vehicle to re-imagine a symbolic ritualistic narrative.

The performance blends original waiata and taonga pūoro with projections and surreal dark lighting states to create an experiential, intuitive and spiritual journey within, into the primal state of Nothingness.

The performers combine theatre and dance constructs from Māori and Western practice. The physical and incorporeal entwine. Beams of light pierce the dark in intricate patterns, fractal shapes shift and swirl, and time alters in the expanse of space.

WHEN: Tues 6, Wed 7, Thurs 8, Fri 9 April, 7.00pm
WHERE: Mayfair Theatre - General Admission
DURATON: 80 minutes, no interval
PRICE: Full $30, Under 19/Student/Senior/Group of 6+ $25 plus service fees
Tickets available here.

We managed to secure a grant from Bendigo Valley to go towards upgrading our foyer.
Special mentions also to Andy from Artzone for making our gorgeous Pin Boards, JB Hi-Fi for a fabulous deal on our 60inch TV,

We're trying our hardest to upgrade some of our facilities during our down time.
At the beginning of May we were lucky enough to have some Foundation Studies and Trade Students from the Otago Polytechnic come and help us repaint the dressing rooms. A lot of prep work went in beforehand though and some of our committee members were spotted with tools and rags in hand to patch the holes and clean the walls ready for painting.
