Our video-walk, Hidden Tracks, developed between 2019-20 as part of the Creative New Zealand/Department of Conservation Wild Creations co-commission, is finally available for the public to experience. Presented as part of What If The City Was a Theatre
Binge Culture creatives Joel Baxendale and Oliver Devlin have collected masses of audio and video recordings from residency on Kāpiti Island to transport you to the lush reserve from right here in the city.
Journey along the paths of the original waterways of Te Whanganui-a-Tara (the original coastline and the now buried Waimapihi Stream) in this 27 minute video-walk that starts at The Opera House and takes you on an exploration of the various perspectives on the role of nature in urban environments - from the past and into the future.
Two options to experience Hidden Tracks:
6 - 28 February // any time
The Opera House // 111 Manners Street, Wellington

Hosts will be available on-site every Sunday in February from 1-4pm, with provided devices to send you on a stunning video tour through the bush - right here in the CBD!
Time and time again, people tell us that making theatre is hard work. Money's in IT these days, kids. Apps n' all that. Y'know, apps. Bold new world, all online... Apps. Yeah, apps.
So we're app developers now.
Well, sort of. We've created this wild idea of a show and you can find the start line on your phone. Where you go from there... Well, you will have to find out!
When the answer to everything is at our fingertips, how much information is too much information? And who else has access to it? In Big Data, a bespoke app-driven adventure whisks you on a journey around town to find where your data goes – and who is looking after it. Part-treasure hunt, part-mystery; Big Data is a theatrical game filled with challenges and bizarre characters – from sneaky bots right through to the big data boss.
