Toi Pōneke Arts Centre is a creative space where the city's arts communities interact, produce innovative works, teach and exhibit in the heart of Wellington.
Join Te Hau Tūtū (Independent Māori Theatre Producers Room) creatives in The Hub to hear excerpts from works in progress including:
Pakaru by Mitch Tawhi Thomas, produced by Hapai Productions, to premiere as part of Kia Mau Festival 2019. Kingdom of Women, by Nancy Brunning, Hapai Productions. Hide the Dog, co-written by Jamie McCaskill and Nathan Maynard (Tasmania), Tikapa Productions.
Composer and performer Cory Champion works with the recording and amplification of cymbals, drums and drum machines to create fluid soundscapes, exploiting blurred textures between acoustic and synthesised sources. These percussion instruments are also amplified in the gallery space as sculptural works able to be played, continually modulating Champion’s immersive, harmonic soundscapes.
