Street perfomers of New Zealand

January 26, 2010

I was at Wellington, New Zealand recently to speak at a linux conference. During my week’s stay there, I happened to capture a few interesting street performances at Cuba St and Manner’s St. Most of the performances were done for soliciting money (aka begging), but a few were for some cause.  Here are some sample videos I captured.

This is a boy who was dancing at a street corner to raise funds for his band’s travel to compete at a dance competition!

This was another performer seen playing at Manner’s Street. It wasn’t sure if she was playing for money or just for pleasure of playing
