Event description

*********************EXTRA SHOW ADDED 5PM*********************

For MAP's fourth Community Choreographic Project, choreographer Anna Bate, in collaboration with sound artist Demarnia Lloyd, and lighting designer Stuart Lloyd-Harris, have created a multidisciplinary and site-based performance at the Christchurch City Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū titled, Underside.

These collaborators, and an ensemble of community dancers have created a performance that takes place in the car park beneath the Gallery. A science fiction feel permeates the choreography with real fake futures of sculptural figures  creating what could be described as, an animated science fiction flipbook! 

Underside looks at an alternative approach to archiving the work that galleries exhibit.
