This has to be one of the most unique events I’ve seen in a while! An amazing combination of art, performance, music and visual effects!
Doors will open to the event at 8pm for those wanting to watch the Masters doing their thing in the Speed Painting competition, featuring some of New Zealand’s best body artists. The Artists have 2 hours to cover their nearly-naked models in UV active body paint before the judging.
Models include Miss Phloss, Dan Veint, Vanya Essin, Chris Olwage. After the competition, show will follow featuring dance and performance. Performances include dancing by the fabulous BackLit duet, Singe Productions, Chris Olwage, performances by Burlesque artists Leda Petit, Miss Phloss. Poi by Ash and Patrick and an amazing production by the Silver Circle Acrobatics group and more!
Come along and be part of this SPECTACULAR… If you don’t just want to observe voyeuristic-ally you can come along wearing whites or colours that glow under UV. There will be the opportunity to get painted yourself and dance the night away! Custom UV body / face-paints will be available all night!

Now you ask, what brought all this about? The event is a fundraiser for MADesigns. Not heard of them? Well you have probably heard of New Zealand’s champion body artists Magdalena O’Connor & Amelia Hitchcock, who with their model Georgie are working their butt’s off to get to the World Body Painting Festival in Austria.
