Your guide to events in Nelson, New Zealand
Thursday 31st January-Friday 1st February 2019
Join us for a cabaret night when the Buskers let down their hair for some serious hilarity. We dare you to sit at the front – who knows what might happen! Restricted to adults only - some content might offend.
This year’s performers are:
Hero-san - Japan - an acrobat, breakdancer and gymnast. Herosan's otherworldly balancing, outrageous humour and chopstick skills will have audiences spellbound.
The Atari Show by El Goma - Argentina/Germany - comedian and juggler.
Sara Twister - Australia/Germany - contortionist and acrobatic archer. One of the only professional contortionists in the world who, whilst balancing on her arms, can fire a bow … with her feet! Ready. Aim. Fire!
The Silver Starlets – Canada – All-female aerial acrobatic show. Full of glam, glitz and glitter, the Starlets twist, tumble, bend, climb and fall.
Basketball Jones - New Zealand - basketball freestyle and comedy juggling - ball skills like no other witnessed.
The Boathouse is on of three locations over four days. Trafalgar Street and the Church Steps are family-friendly free events.
