For World AIDS Day and in association with NZAF, Body Positive and Positive Women the Puāwai Festival launches its fresh new True Colours Cabaret Gala!!!!!!!!
This year we invite you to immerse yourself in an evening of stellar entertainment by incredible local talent, raising awareness for a community that has a whakapapa and stories that are uniquely their own!
An evening of dance, aerial performance, spoken word and music featuring performances from The Dust Palace's Jackson Cordery, and dancers Phoebe Heyhoe and Ardon England. Our Puāwai vocalists Amanda Grace Leo, Emma Kahu Walter, Zaverr Doctor, Alexandra McKellar and Paul Fagamalo. And, not forgetting our headline act, NZ icons The Lady Killers!
“…The Lady Killers' sound defies pigeonholing, wilfully crossing genres from pop, R&B, jazz, gospel, country to a whole lot of rock and gleefully name-checking artists such as Queen, The Beatles, Neil Young, Neil Finn and Dolly Parton. These gals sing anything that takes their fancy....” -NZ Herald
This is a night not to be missed!
True Colours Cabaret Gala is the crescendo to a full week of awareness events celebrating our authentic selves, the 30th anniversary of the NZ Aids Memorial Quilts.
Co-presented by Auckland Live and Taurima Vibes.
