Event Details

This summer, Mixit presents an exciting new free performance project in partnership with the Auckland Botanic Gardens alongside their biannual Sculpture in the Gardens installation. In A Curious Garden will play in and around the garden and sculptures, where visitors can experience this dynamic and colourful theatrical adventure on 18 & 19 January 2020 11AM and 3PM.

Taking the imaginative framework of Lewis Carroll’s classic story Alice in Wonderful, this devised work will weave together stories, moments and unexpected encounters throughout the beautiful grounds of the Botanic Gardens. Along the way, stories will reflect issues about the environment, endangered plants and the perspectives of the talented cast of young performers around their concerns and dreams for the future of the planet. Bringing to life this dynamic and colourful creative performance will be a 30 strong cast of 13 – 20 year olds from a broad range of backgrounds and experiences.
