‘Weg’ means in german ‘away’ or ‘path’ and is inspired by nearly 2 years spent living in Berlin.
Come feast and share in a fiercely playful, ritualised performance art, video installation, dance celebration ‘workshop’ of self-exploitation. It will take you on an ‘interactive’ journey through the mind, body and detritus of the ghosted, ‘objectified subject,’ reflecting ‘self as other,’ with 10 accompanying musicians from NZ and Berlin.
Musicians include:
Sam Hamilton, Daniel Satele, Nathan Taare, Addison Course, Moppy, Sky Bear, Alexa Wilson (Berlin) Will Gresson, Ellen Schneider, Veronica Mota.
