THEY COME FROM FAR AWAY:
a performance festival
They come from far away is a live performance series featuring a mixture of visiting artists from Finland, Germany, the UK, and across Aotearoa. The series will explore notions of the familiar/unfamiliar, being alien/belonging, being foreign/local and being seen/unseen.
Co-curated by Leena Kela (Finland), Christopher Hewitt (Germany), and Auckland-based Mark Harvey, the series will be situated in spaces in or around Te Uru as well as further out into the surrounding environment. Live performances will be accompanied by video screenings and public talks.
