Share the joy and tomfoolery of the award winning White Face Crew in a superbly choreographed show, involving couch leaping, shoe stealing, and good old fashioned clowning around. Created and performed by Justin Haiu, Tama Jarman and Jarod Rawiri, Double Derelicts is guaranteed to amuse and impress. Fun for the whole family.

Two colourful street characters go head to head in a city park. What begins as a hilarious duet turns into a charming tale when a gloomy businessman interrupts their daily routine. Will his dark clouds engulf them or can they turn his frown upside down? This is top notch physical theatre and dance from the award-winning White Face Crew.

This event is free and spaces are limited. We advise arriving early.
