Event description


Ōtautahi Tiny Performance Festival is a platform for the next wave of performance makers and audiences in Ōtautahi. 

Tiny Fest creates space for mana kōrero, mana ao tūroa, and mana tangata, by bringing people together to celebrate differences and the ways we are all interconnected.

With back-to-back shows, panel discussions, durational and one-on-one performance works, Tiny Fest is a bold, innovative, and brave selection of experimental performance.

The 2023 program includes 60 artists, 21 shows, over 3 days of unmissable performance, at Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetu, University of Canterbury Arts, and Canterbury Workers Educational Association.
