We are very excited to be back for 2023 and to be hosted at the Adam Art Gallery. Please join us for an evening of whimsical, wild, winding, waiting, whinging and weird performances, video works and installations.
To watch something in person? investigates autonomy, boundaries, and (freedom of) movement. It questions how much agency the audience possesses in the face of the artist’s will.
Restless manoeuvers performs the material and spatial terrain of the Adam Art Gallery spurred by contemporary texts on Māori and Pākehā relations.
Louie Zalk-Neale is draped with kawe ~ woven tī kōuka carrying straps ~ and performs to activate a sculptural blue plastic barrel. Seven people can form a circle to direct their focus along radiating tendrils to the central moana-filled vessel.
An artist who can promise nothing but potential failure
Pawa runs on the contributions of our event goers and public funding.
We believe performance art should be assible to everyone, thats why majority of our shows are open to the public, however if you have funds to spare please consider contributing.
