Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival looks to New Zealand for an inspired cultural mix of international and home grown talent, from Tipping Point, a thrilling aerial circus by Ockham’s Razor, to tribal weaponry Maori-style.
The Ageas Salisbury International Arts Festival is delighted to unveil a taster of the 2016 Festival returning for its 44th year with a characteristically diverse cultural programme celebrating the very best of music, theatre, dance, circus, film, visual arts, literature and family events.
Continuing a four-year journey inspired by Stonehenge and tracing the cardinal points of the compass, 2016 will see the Festival look south to New Zealand, geographically the country most distant from the UK, drawing inspiration from the island’s rich fusion of Maori, Pacific Island and European cultures.
A curated mix of New Zealand’s finest artistic heritage from contemporary performers to Maori singers, film-makers and story-tellers, will run alongside the Festival’s unique programme of internationally acclaimed performers and home-grown commissions spanning new music, street theatre and dance.
