Place Des Anges Volunteers

Place des Anges Credit Grant HancockCome and be part of Auckland Arts Festival 2020!

Angel wranglers are required for our biggest event in the 2020 Festival. Place des Anges  is an outdoor aerial spectacle, with more than 10,000 audience members expected to come join in the fun as the angels make their way to the ground for a party.

Our volunteers will take part in one of three roles:

Ground Landing Assistants (14 people): The attentive team that ensures that the angels who descend from the sky land comfortably on earth among humans.

Blower Operators (12 people): Help make the show special by handling some key show elements. It is an intense and physical role, so you’ll need to be in good physical health, dynamic, and of course, not afraid to be in the cyclone eye of the feather storm.

Inflatable Angel Helpers (2 people): Follow the Angel Manipulator all over the audience area, facilitate their displacement over the crowd, and take care with people in its trajectory. You must be attentive, very dynamic, and able to run if need be.

All volunteers will be on their feet for at least two hours so will require a moderate level of fitness and very good mobility. You also need to be over 18.

You will need to be available for all of the following hours:
Thu 12 Mar 6.30pm–10.00pm: Briefing & Dress Rehearsal
Fri 13 Mar 7.00pm–10.00pm: Show 1
Sat 14 Mar 7.00pm–10.00pm: Show 2
Sun 15 Mar 7.00pm–10.00pm: Show 3

As a volunteer, you will receive full training for your roles in the performance.
