Tickets to the first show announced for the 2019 Southland Arts Festival, the highly acclaimed 'Human', are now on sale! 

Designed to make audiences laugh, gasp and blush, ‘Human’ presented by MORE FM is set to wow audiences at Invercargill’s ILT Stadium Southland on May 3 2019.

As the latest production from New Zealand’s pre-eminent circus theatre, The Dust Palace, ‘Human’ features gravity-defying, extraordinary cirque performers who showcase what the human body is capable of - even at great heights.

Southland Arts Festival Director Angela Newell said it is the biggest production the Festival has ever included in its programme.

“This show is a world-class spectacle that you won’t want to miss,” Newell said.

An early bird ticket promotion including premium-seating tickets from $40 per adult and $15 per child is running until February 22nd 2019.

“These early bird deals give you the opportunity to witness what we think is, the biggest aerial acrobatics, circus theatre show Southland has ever witnessed at very reasonable prices!” Newell said.

To add to the prestige of what ILT Stadium Southland General Manager Nigel Skelt is claiming to be the glamour event of 2019, hospitality packages are also available that include tickets to the show, a two-course meal prepared by the Ascot Park Hotel and a complimentary drink on arrival.

Thanks to the generosity of local funders, prices to the spectacular event will be very reasonable, with tickets post-February 22nd selling for $18 per child, $30 for silver seating, $40 for Gold seating and $45 for premium seating.

A family package (two adults and two children) will also be available to purchase for $106.

“You will not want to miss this show - people will be talking about it for years to come and it will cement Southland’s ability to punch above its weight in terms of attracting world class acts,” Newell said.

‘Human’ is the first of many captivating and exciting shows to be announced for the 2019 Southland Arts Festival which will open on April 10.

Tickets are available for purchase online at TicketDirect or from ILT Stadium Southland and TicketDirect outlets.
