Family friendly Seascape Projections celebrates the stories and magical creatures that inhabit Te Whanganui-a-Tara. In Tara’s harbour sea creatures play including merpeople and scaly mythological Manaia, shapeshifting and splashing around you…
Rachie Campbell & VJ Cubeman’s Seascape Projections onto nature, architecture and water reflections around Performance Arcade 2024 create a memorising unique sea scape. The duo play a unique soundscape of music to draw people into the reflections with splashing water noises, dolphin hellos and nguru, traditional nose flute.
