platform 2005

Experimental performance series.
Curated with Jemma Nissen.
held at the Wine Cellar, Auckland, New Zealand.
September 2005 – April 2006

Platform was a series of performance nights showcasing diverse approaches to experimental performance, regularly drawing audiences of 50-70 people. Over its eight-month duration it featured dance, film, slide shows, storytelling, live installation, sound, drawing, shadow puppetry and video art. The event grew by word-of-mouth and provided an informal but public opportunity for performance.

I co-initiated, organized, hosted and documented the event as well as performing on two occasions. My first performance was a three slide-projector piece called “slide juggling”. The second was a drawing performance that made use of chance selections to direct drawing operations.
