A Creative playground blurring lines between audience & performer

With previous programmes including mobile street theatre, pop-up performances, family entertainment, installations, dance, and musical genres spanning opera, rock, toi māori, brass, Balkan beats, indie and post punk. CubaDupa has cemented itself as a creative concrete playground that blurs the line between the audience and performer; offering inclusion, participation and artistic exploration for all.

CubaDupa is nurtured under the umbrella of Wellington’s Creative Capital Arts Trust, a non-profit organisation looking out for the arts and artists alike, also housing the fabulous New Zealand Fringe Festival.
