On Friday, February 24, 2012, the New Zealand International Arts Festival opened. One of the premiers that night was First Contact 2012 by Michel Tuffery. It is being displayed on the outside of Te Papa until the end of the festival each night. The opening was a fantastic show with music and dance that conveyed the meaning of the exhibit: first contact in New Zealand in a number of different ways. The soundtrack can be downloaded from the web site and anybody walking along the waterfront after dusk should spend at least a few minutes in front of Te Papa to take in the display.
