This work will be re-presented during Tempo Auckland's Festival of Dance, Body Festival in Christchurch, Rice and Beans Gallery in Dunedin this year. It aims to tour Australia, Europe and the U.S.A in 2012.
A non-solo solo performance by Alexa Wilson...
Come feast and share in a fiercely playful, ritualised performance art, video installation, dance celebration 'workshop' of self-exploitation. It will take you on an 'interactive' journey through the mind, body and detritus of the ghosted, 'objectified subject,' reflecting 'self as other,' with 10 accompanying musicians from NZ and Berlin.
'Weg' means in german 'away' or 'path'.. and ...i've just spent a year and a half living in Berlin.
Musicians live or pre-recorded are:
(NZ) Sam Hamilton, Daniel Satele, Nathan Taare, Addison Course, Moppy, Sky Bear, Alexa Wilson (Berlin) Will Gresson, Ellen Schneider, Vero Mota.
Its not as serious as it sounds and is interactive. Be ready for anything. But expect nudity, adult themes and fire.
