Bubble Bites Series

Online


Creative Mercury Bay launched ‘Bubble Bites’ in April - an online video series of short performances for their audiences; by locals, for locals. It was a way to help local Coromandel Peninsula performance artists and their audiences stay connected during the COVID-19 lockdown and bubble restrictions. 

 

‘Bubble Bites’ was a weekly video series of 30 minute pre-recorded shows, which aired every Thursday on Creative Mercury Bay’s Facebook page and YouTube channel. Each episode offered ‘bites’ of local creativity by showcasing performing arts talent from all over the Coromandel Peninsula. Artist’s video-recorded their performances in their ‘bubbles’ and sent them through to CMB to be incorporated into an episode. 

 

From Coromandel to Kuaotunu, Whitianga to Whenuakite, Tairua to Thames, Bubble Bites encompassed a total of 33 original compositions including poetry, theatre, dance and various genres of music; even cooking!  A truly inclusive community initiative, Bubble Bites featured the creative talents of people from all walks of life, ages and abilities. 

 

The first three Bubble Bites episodes were partially funded by Creative Mercury Bay, with the latter half of the series made possible by the Creative New Zealand Arts Continuity Grant.

 

“We were absolutely thrilled to be successful with our funding application to Creative New Zealand, and greatly appreciative of their support. We couldn’t have offered the further seven episodes without their grant,” explains Jan (acting chair of Creative Mercury Bay).

 

Creative Mercury Bay would like to thank all the participating artists for their exceptional contributions. The CMB team would also like to express their gratitude for the publicity support provided by Coromandel’s CFM, The Mercury Bay Informer, All About Whitianga and Coromandel’s More FM

 

The Bubble Bites series is available to view in its entirety on the CMB YouTube Channel and Facebook page.
