Announcing the premiere of Who What Where Now at Aotea Centre - part of Auckland Live's Pick & Mix. Commissioned by Auckland Live, Who What Where Now is a brand-new app-driven adventure that takes audiences on a quest through Aotea Centre and Aotea Square. Uncover a trail of magic and mystery, and meet the creatures that were here before us alongside characters from the silliest corners of your imagination.
A world of puzzles and play, rich in colour and sound, can be found in the places you least expect — and in corners of the theatre you have never seen before. You have the clues and the courage to explore both the theatrical and the natural world on a quest to find a precious taonga.
Who What Where Now is guided by the new Pickpath app, which grew out of Binge Culture's explorations with technology in performance.
Perfect for ages 4-10 with adult supervision, it can be completed in groups of 2 - 6 people. Sunday 6 November at the Aotea Centre. Free entry but bookings essential.

Who What Where Now is guided by mobile app Pickpath: a new digital experience-creation tool. The Pickpath technology was first trialled in Big Data and has since developed with support from Ministry of Culture and Heritage.
Pickpath was conceived by the Binge Culture team as an affordable, flexible, artist-friendly solution to inaccessibility of app development. The creator studio is in a closed beta-testing phase, and we are welcoming proposals for collaboration from artists who wish to make their own app-guided adventures.
If you are interested in making new art with this exploratory technology, please get in touch.
Ralph, Oli and Joel have devised a creative new audio guide for Te Papa's exhibition, Hiahia Whenua: Landscape and desire. It's the first in a series for the Toi | Art galleries. Have a listen - in the gallery or at home - and hear from curators, artists, and experts, as well as some unexpected characters.
