FRIDAY NIGHT 2018

Home?

Home? was a mixed media performance reflecting Rewa Fowles’s experience moving to New Zealand, the country of her birth, as an adult Third Culture Kid (TCK). TCK are people who grew up living in multiple cities far different from where their parents grew up or what is stated on their passports.

She grew up in International Schools, living in: Suva, Fiji; Ulaanbaatar, Mongolia; Bangkok, Thailand; Beijing, China; and Suzhou, China.

The piece surrounded the question of ‘home’, a complicated concept for many Third Culture Kids. During this performance, you will hear what many people have said to Rewa on a daily basis due to her background. You will see how it was said.

999: Alchemist Trauma Centre / Power Centre

999: Alchemist Trauma Centre / Power Centre is a “feminist meditation, poetic activist activation”, shaking the foundations of belief systems at the intersection of East and West, technological and organic in a way that has been described as “punk”. It offers humour and insight into the struggling, chaotic global conditions of our time from a subjective perspective, by provocatively questioning our shifting foundations in this neoliberal era and offering a way to be present amidst the confused but generative tension within intersectionality.

It was born in India on a residency I curated in the Himalayas and has been performed as a work in progress in Berlin and London and will also be performed in India. This work will have an accompanying creative text in a the form of a small publication as a process funded by Creative NZ.

Similar to the “trigger warnings” said before some performances in certain “socially progressive” scenes in the past few years, New Zealand-born Alexa Wilson begins her bold, funny, and insightful piece by asking the audience, “Do you want the angry version or the reflective version?”
