Baycourt Community & Arts Centre

Presented by: Baycourt Presents

Created in collaboration with local primary school children, Lookout is a one-to-one encounter between one adult audience member and one child performer taking place somewhere high up overlooking the city. 

Together performer and audience member look out at the city and imagine its future. The conversation they share is a quiet journey through the past, present and future guided by the streets and landmarks laid out before them, they explore two very different versions of the city they both inhabit.

An exchange between two people who might not normally meet, about a future world they may or may not share.

Lookout will show you Tauranga from a new perspective, giving you insight into the possible future of our city, through the eyes of someone who you might not normally have the chance to hear from. Your journey into an imagined future begins at Baycourt Community and Arts Centre, and will take you to a Lookout in the CBD, not usually open to the public.

Originally commissioned by The Arches and the Unicorn Theatre. Supported by Arts Council England. The Tauranga edition of Lookout is supported by Tauranga City Council.
