Tickets and festival information:
Mt Aspiring College band Oddity
will be performing at Wanaka's
Festival of Colour this year.
Described as ''quirky, original
sound, whimsical lyrics and
youthful zest'' the band won the
regional people's choice award at
2012's Rockquest competition and
features on the Lost and Found
Sounds album, which won the
2012 Rockshop Album of the Year.
They join a large number of
performances targeted at Central
Otago and Queenstown Lakes
school pupils in the Schoolfest
segment of the festival.
A children's highlight is Ivy,a
theatre performance starring an
eccentric museum cleaning lady
who, with the help of her time-
travelling trolley, takes students
on a whirlwind journey through
history, as she strives to save the
dinosaurs from extinction.
Directed by Kerryn Palmer and
starring the writer, Jennifer
Martin, and Kenny King, Ivy is
accompanied by acclaimed com-
poser Gareth Farr and his
percussion group, Strike, who
will hold workshops and perfor-
mances for school children in the
lead-up to their festival shows.
Music workshops at schools will
also be provided by Adam Page,
described by festival organisers
as a ''wizard of live looping''.
Page plays the saxophone and
records live bass, banjo, clarinet
and didgeridoo into loop pedals to
complete his performance which
could range from funk to classi-
cal, and jazz to afrobeat.
Storyteller Tanya Batt will visit
schools to present The Story
House, described as illustrated
story-telling based on the Japan-
ese Kamishibai method.
Singer-songwriter Amiria Grenell
will also visit preschools and
kindergartens and children's
writer and illustrator Gavin
Bishop will talk to years 4 to 6
students about writing and illus-
trating his favourite stories.
The artists are visiting schools in
Wanaka, Hawea Flat, Cromwell,
Queenstown, Tarras and
Makarora. All Schoolfest perfor-
mances and workshops are fully
booked, except one showing of Ivy.
Schools are also encouraged to
take their students to see artists at
work on the Pouwhenua bil-
lboards project. Four artists will
paint large billboards on Wana-
ka's lakefront from April 12 to 15,
depicting the place and the people.
The 2013 biennial Festival of
Colour is from April 16 to 21.
