Sam Trubridge is a performance designer, artist, curator, and director. He has created work for venues and events across Oceania, Europe, and the Americas. His practice focusses on spaces and states of liquidity, often performing on/in/at sea to unsettle relationships between knowing and unknowing or to create almost impossible situations. Disciplinary boundaries are also explored – through his long collaboration with sleep scientist Philippa Gander or with freediving athletes. His performance art has featured in events like The Prague Quadrennial (Czechia), Interpretive Wonderings and Performing Mobility (Australia), Deep Anatomy (The Bahamas and NZ), and art/science programmes in Brazil, NZ, Japan, and Spain. He currently directs The Performance Arcade on Wellington Waterfront and has curated other events such as the Waking art/science incubator, Deep Anatomy with free-divers and artists (The Bahamas and NZ), The StageSpace at Wellington Airport in 2011, and NZ New Performance Festival at La MaMa Theatre in New York 2015 (USA).
