Celebrate the change of season. A transformation from the last moments of summer to the first days of winter. CubaDupa brings all walks of life in an immersive experience to ‘get on up’ during the day or ‘get on down’ in the evening.
Help us do the Cuba Dupa!
CubaDupa is roaring ahead thanks to support from the Wellington City Council, Wellington Airport, The Wellington Company, Cato Brand Partners, MediaWorks, Havana Coffee, Westpac Bank, Fronde, CQ Hotel, Wellington Community Trust, Museum Hotel, Chilli, and many more. A project of this magnitude has a lot of moving parts! We're seeking donations to allow us to commission new works as part of the festival which will be undertaken at the highest professional standards. These projects provide a snapshot of the festival - there will be many more fantastic events bringing together professional and community arts groups. We hope you will join us!
CubaDupa will transform New Zealand's coolest inner-city, Wellington's Cuba Quarter, into a magical playground of light, sound & taste. Restaurants will spill into the streets to create a culinary cacophony. People will flow through the streets and laneways, exploring the myriad of spaces filled with activity, music, dance, theatre, circus and visual installation.
