Mika Haka Foundation and Auckland Fringe present:

NYC House Party Comes to Mt Roskill

As part of Aroha17 Festival of Ideas and Auckland Fringe, we will be hosting two nights of house parties!

‘It is what it is, and it aint what it aint.’
Experience the underground and non-conformist-alternative performance styles of NYC and Auckland. Check it; interaction, activation, great food and chill zones ... come as your authentic self. Harlem, New York Cyber-Soul artist GypjaQ (Blown Away feat. Azealia Banks) is our Master of Ceremonies bringing LOVE and UNITY to Mt. Roskill, Puketapapa.
Supporting the vibes are spoken word artists, revealing truths from varying cultures and backgrounds:
·         Jasper Powell with COMMON.
·         Liam Jacobson
·         Andreea Kindryd (one of the first black women employed on Star Trek)
·         World Champion beatboxer King Home Boy with some “tru”-school break dancers freestyling on vinyl floors and mellow open mic opportunities.

A night of original works, spoken truths and political questioning for exploring minds. Food vendors and finger food from Kris’s Kitch! Outdoor DJ, couture-but-makeshift lounges and mannequin wastelands. So….drop the baggage and come and explore what an NYC House Party SHOULD BE.
Part of the Mika Haka Foundation Aroha17 Festival of Ideas; #Aroha17 Festival of Ideas is a jam-packed, summer Film, Dance, Music and Gala week of events, from February 15 - 25 this year. From Academy Award Nominee Keisha Castle-Hughes to Klub Nights with NZ Hip Hop's Top 20; all live and online! Join NZ cabaret and comedy icons Mika and friends at an All Stars Gala, ending with world Contemporary Dance premieres and even a house party in Mt. Roskill - all created by The Mika Haka Foundation.
