The Performance Arcade – Video Series

AV Gallery
The Opening Night is on Monday 15 April, 6pm

Artistic Director – Sam Trubridge

The Performance Arcade is an acclaimed live art festival presented every year on Wellington Waterfront since 2011, featuring a diverse program of art, live music, and performance. Installed within a special architectural arrangement of shipping containers the event explores innovative new modes for live art presentation, engaging with the ‘accidental audience’ and reaching through the city with a web of interventions and performance encounters. The free admission and waterfront location makes it accessible to a broad community, developing empowered audiences and participants in the creative and cultural life of the city. This selection of video works present videos by three artists presenting in The Performance Arcade over the past three years.
