Celebrate the beginning of this year's New Zealand Festival with a special event at dusk...
A cast of thousands will be on Wellington's waterfront to perform Kupe - a new work by Anna Marbrook, Hoturoa Barclay-Kerr and Kasia Pol.
The work is inspired by the tales of explorer and navigator Kupe and his arrival in Aotearoa. Watch as a fleet of waka make their way across Wellington harbour, as they finish a journey which started in Samoa.
The event features a choir, live music and a haka. The event is free.
