As the sun sets over the city, high above the tree tops, angels descend from the heavens. Don't miss the outdoor event of the summer.
This is Place des Anges, a playful, awe-inspiring aerial spectacle performed above thousands of people. The one-of-a-kind creation of French company Gratte Ciel commands the twilight sky with an incredible team of acrobats and dancers – suspended high in the air, beneath the stars and out in the open.
Uplifting, ethereal and totally out of this world, Place des Anges has left its mark – and countless memories – wherever it has landed around the globe. The angels land next in Tāmaki Makaurau; for three amazing nights, Auckland Domain is their outdoor playground. Be there to welcome them down to earth and share in the wonder of this very special event.
If Groupe F’s Breath of the Volcano had your pulse racing in the Auckland Domain in 2013, Place des Anges will make your heart soar.
This is a standing outdoor performance suitable for all ages. Chairs are not permitted.
Includes the use of sustainably sourced and sterilised feathers.
